Have you received letters home from your child’s school letting you know that their behavior at school is disruptive? Is it escalating?
There is a reason for misbehaving in school and it isn’t because your child is “bad”. Let me help you determine the cause so we can help your child before it escalates and “snowballs”. All kids want to learn. If they aren’t, there is a reason!
When I climb the stairs, to the attic room I use for my writing center, I smell the musty air settling down on my skin as I climb the folding ladder. I left my work abruptly, yesterday, and now hope my ideas will flow freely back into my head. This quiet attic holds more stories than I am even aware of, which I hope to learn by sitting at my desk, with the light of my lamp shining upon my typewriter.
When I look in the mirror I see nothing. I wander the halls of my home waiting for her to come back. She left abruptly without any notice. She has not come back yet and does not try to reach me.

What would you say is a truly great black and white movie?Not really having watched many black and white movies I honestly will admit, in public, that the beginning of the Wizard of Oz is great.
If you could live in any home on a television series, which one would it be?The Jetsons. I love that everything is on hand and moving about the community is only a button away.
