  • Bullying defined

    Dear Readers,
    Several years ago I was privileged enough to attend a training on Bullying presented by Dr. Allan L. Beane. Dr. Beane has been one of our nation’s leading experts on the topic for many years and having been exposed to his teachings I can vouch for his expertise.
    The topic of bullying is so important that it may take more than one week for me to address it so in the upcoming weeks there will be more information provided. I hope that it helps you as parents to be more aware of whether your child is being bullied or if your child is the bully.

  • We are all ‘millennials’

    Since last year I’ve gotten three new podmates at work, all millennials (those born in the 1980s to the early 2000s).
    One just turned 30, one just turned 27 and one, at 22, is younger than my favorite denim jacket that I still wear.
    I call them my pod kids and they call me their pod mom.
    Of the three, the 30-year-old was horrified to learn that she is a millennial. She had me watch a “Millennials in the Workplace” You Tube video that hilariously portrayed her generation as, among other things, always expecting a reward for doing their job.
