How To Talk To Your Kid About Lance Armstrong -- Without Mentioning His Name

All of us have been horrified by Lance Armstrong's arrogant "apology" for his cheating to win his cycling titles. His lack of self-awareness and clear calculation during his interview with Oprah no doubt will do nothing to repair his image in sports or American popular culture. Has there ever been a hero to so many who has fallen so far and displayed such breathtaking levels of unlikeability?I was a teacher during the time of Armstrong's most impressive accomplishments, not only the Tour de…See More

Should You Ask a Babysitter 65 Questions Before You Hire Her?

Posted on January 18, 2013 at 9:28am 0 Comments

It's a brave new world when it comes to hiring a caregiver for your child.

When I hired the first of a few part-time babysitters for my son during his first year, I asked all the questions I thought I was supposed to: about her childcare experiences, about her discipline style, about first aid training.
