3. What the Common Core Standards Mean

8. Alternatives for Non-Athletic Sons

9. Words of Encouragement for Moms
There is no perfect way to mother your children, and there is no model for the ideal mother. If you love your children and they love you, consider yourself a successful mom!
10. Review of Send by Patty Blount
