Before my kids were born, I rarely posted on social media. Once my first was born, he was (in my mind) the cutest baby ever and everyone needed to see him. It also made it easier to stay connected to friends and family across the globe without annoying group texts.
It is definitely a new world out there. From cell phones that distract kids daily, to vaping that hides the smell of a newly found habit, to the internet that exposes kids to anything and everything, parents are faced with a huge amount of challenges these days. These challenges seem to be exacerbated as kids enter the teenage years.
Drownings are often preventable accidents and all parents should take steps to keep their children safe in and around the water. Here are some easy steps to follow to ensure that your family is safe.
My entire life, I wanted to be an attorney. I went to college, followed by law school and subsequently practiced law, just as I had always planned. However, after having kids, my goals changed. I didn’t want to be behind a desk from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm and then have to put in more grueling hours after the kids went to sleep. The long work hours seemed unimportant compared to the time that I wanted to spend with my family and what I wanted out of life. I struggled with leaving the career that I had worked so hard at building. However, I knew that I had to make a change to make myself and my family happy.
