3 Steps to Improving the Quality of Your Kid’s Screen Time During a Pandemic

You don't have to feel guilty about screen time. In a matter of weeks, my five-year-old daughter went from having no experience with video calls to becoming our family’s go-to expert. The other day I overheard her explaining to her teacher, “You have to mute everybody to make the echo stop.” I’m impressed but not surprised.

STEAM Activities for Kids

As we move further along into this post-pandemic quarantine, parents everywhere are looking for ways to keep their child busy throughout the day. While binge watching television shows may be a solution for some, there are much better ways to engage your child. You can even help them gain new skills while staying at home.

How to Celebrate “Take Your Kids to Work Day” While Working from Home

Today is National Take Your Kids to Work Day. Under normal circumstances, it would be a time for you to bring your kids to the office to give them a glimpse into the working world, teach them something new, and share experiences together. Obviously, this year things are a bit different.

STEM at Home: A Parent's Cookbook to Teaching STEM

If you have a child in school, you’ve probably seen or heard the term “STEM.” STEM is a term used to describe the study of four academic disciplines: science, technology, engineering, and math. While children have always studied these subjects, STEM brings them together in new ways through an interdisciplinary approach to education.
