Why You Should Take More Pictures of Your Kids

Growing up I hated posing for pictures. Everywhere we’d go my parents would want to snap a picture of the rest of my family and me.

Moving Past Anxiety

Some people like to talk about feelings as if they are unimportant. Do you remember the old saying, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”?
