Welcome to The Learning Lab!

They challenge me constantly.  Challenge me to up my game and keep learning, keep improving.  They push me to love more and find grace more often.  Kids do that, and so much more.  Mine are Davis (8) and Patrick (7).

Their needs probably aren’t that much different than your kids.  Our parenting challenges are probably pretty similar too.  Everyone’s a little different, but we have a lot in common.  Figuring out how to help them soar, while keeping them grounded.  Teaching them how to be kind, but stick up for themselves and others.

We have a lot of ground to cover.

Here is where I’ll be curating ideas, providing my take and getting some local experts to weigh in on the issues we face as parents.  Let me know if I’m covering the right topics:

  • School – books reviews, science experiments, writing tips and art projects
  • Social life – movie and app reviews, sports and hobbies
  • Health – nutrition, exercise and mental health
  • Parenting – behavior management, parenting book reviews and spiritual growth

I’m always open to new ideas. Drop me an email or post on Facebook, if you have other ideas for me to cover.
