The history and learning opportunities alone make traveling to Washington D.C. a worthwhile trip. But with so many museums, government buildings and attractions the city can be overwhelming especially when visiting with children. Pre-planning and research are key to making a D.C. trip easy on the entire family. Another great idea to consider is renting […]


Terrible Twos: Raising Twin Tweens!

Whenever a friend or family welcomes a new baby- somewhere along the way my husband and I get asked- ‘HOW did you do it with two?’ The ‘toughness’ with twins almost always is associated with the infant and toddler years (and perhaps the teen years) but no one really tells you about those ‘in between’ […]

Helping Your Tween Keep Learning in The Summer

Sleep in, watch TV, go to camp, hang out with friends and play video games – that about sums up my tween’s plans for the summer. It came as a bit of a shock to them when I grabbed the pages from their school work books that they hadn’t finished and started assigning them a […]

Being a Role Model for your Kids

One word I would use to describe tweens is influenced. This is a sensitive age where influences from every angle of their lives actually matter and impact their behavior or thoughts in a positive or negative way.
