Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic

Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic | Family Blog |

Teaching students the importance of having and using manners is nothing new to teachers. However, what has changed is the type of etiquette kids needs today—namely, the digital kind. True, please, thank you and excuse me are still significant, but in addition to these basics, students growing up in this ever-connected, social media crazed world require much more. Concepts such as online privacy, sharing and creating a positive digital footprint through the demonstration of responsible online behaviors are just as vital.

Why schools need to lead in the use of digital technologies, not be dragged  reluctantly into the 21st century.

Awesome, worked great when we were going through articles together in class which had difficult vocab - saves so much time!

What a great idea!  We use text readers that have similar functionality, but to have this app live in your browser all the time makes it that much more accessible.

Is Wholesale Stores for Every Family?

Is Wholesale Stores for Every Family? | Family Blog |
This morning as I was cleaning, I was wondering about some of the things we did over the weekend. One of the things that we did was going to Costco.  I kept on pondering about how Costco is NOT for everyone or every family.
Maparis's insight:

This blog doesn't promote or degrades wholesale stores. It looks into the reasons why wholesale stores, like Costco, may or may not be suitable for every family. As the economy looks less pleasant for many families, some families think twice before buying at wholesale stores.
