It's a gorgeous August evening. The peepers are peeping, the moon has just popped out, and my 3-and-half-year-old son and I are enjoying one of our favorite summer traditions: porch popsicles. A pretty perfect night for us. Suddenly I...
“Let us see the dinosaur app!” I hear it every day. They crowd around, squeezing together to see my phone screen, and I pass it off to whoever seems to have the least-sticky hands. The "dinosaur app” is Timehop. They call...
In this technology driven age, we tried a rather extreme experiment recently. We put our kids on a 3 week long, interactive screens fast. No video games, no tablets, no computers, no cheap handheld games from drugstores, and even...

One of the things I most looked forward to when I became a mother was sharing childhood favorites with my daughter. I can’t wait until we can read the Little House series together, watch The Breakfast Club and visit...
Do you wish your kids had a creative space that went beyond construction paper, scissors, and glue? Do you want your kids to find a STEM activity, but don’t have a clue where to start? Check out the Johnson...
