If you’re the parent of a young child, you know how difficult it can be to get your kid to apologize when they have wronged a friend, sibling or playground foe. Let me paint an all-too-common picture. Moms and dads are casually sipping their lattes, chit-chatting on the perimeter of a playground. Kids are playing and having a great time—until they’re not. Two 4-year-olds, Billy and Lisa, have reached the top of the much-loved twisty slide at the exact same time. Lisa (a little ...

Are You Caring for an Aging Parent? We are all familiar with the Baby Boom era when after World War II Americans felt a sense of relief and went on an approximate 18-year-long trip to love land (I mean baby land). Out of that journey sprung 74.9-million babies that came to be known as Boomers. Now, fast forward 60-plus years and our beloved soul-children, hippy-dippy-Boomer dudes have adult children of their own (Millennials). So our Boomers are grandparents and now they’re ...
