How To Balance Social Media, Family, And Education

The Importance Of Encouraging

Limitations are not something I accept very freely. In fact, in my 20’s before I met my husband, I actually dumped a guy I had been happily dating because he made one comment that insinuated I wasn’t capable of accomplishing a particular goal. This response to limitations goes back to my childhood. Growing up, my mom used to tell me “You can do anything you want to do. Just set your mind to it and go for it.” And my dad was…

Preventing our children from having prejudices

Back in our hometown, there were 110 children from 2 to 10 years old and less than 5 of these children were not white. The majority of the children in this school have white families and I guess (I take myself as a base) most friends (if not all) are white too. There are many reasons for this to happen (the fact that we were in a white town/school). Basically, it’s a historical, sociological, geographical issue too long for me…
