How KOM Reminded Me that Parenting is Letting Go

My daughter sings, “I will go,” in Spanish, then English. She stands in our back porch with her head lifted, eyes serious. It’s a song she learned through Kids on Mission’s (KOM’s) summer program.

Christmas Gift Guide for Unique Kid Gifts 

I get this question every year from the grandparents: “What Christmas gift should we get your kids?”  Sometimes I just want to say, “Oh, you know. A couple of sticks and a box.” (Those always seem to be the “toys” that occupy my kids the longest!)  However, I know my parents ask because they don’t […]

Learning loss, or summer slide, during school breaks
