  • Time to Play: Tips To Help Your Children Enjoy Sports

    By Jessica Fuqua

    It's a fact that many kids are moving away from organized sports and after school activities.

    By Suz Besecker

  • Time to Play: Indoor Activities for Kids

    By Andrea Hatfield

    With the recent arrival of the fall season, it is time to start thinking about activities to keep your children entertained while indoors. When it gets too cold to play outside for long, it is crucial for kids to remain active. Sometimes, you have to get creative in coming up with fun things for them to do in the house. I know that my boys get cabin fever during the cooler months which leads to them fighting and driving each other (and me) crazy! […]

  • Time to Play: Fun Lunchbox Ideas

    By Whitney Wingerd

    When I was in first grade, I was hospitalized with a bad case of salmonella. They were never quite sure what caused it but suspected I ate some bad food at some point. My Mom was extremely cautious about what I ate after that. In fact, so much that I remember an entire year of the same lunch every day...Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. Because they were the least likely to spoil and make me sick. I still can't eat peanut butter and jelly to this day. […]

    As a mom of three boys ages 3, 6 and 8, I can honestly say that on a daily basis I feel like I am living in the midst of a toy explosion. I can't tell you how many times I have tripped or stepped on Legos, balls, Hot Wheels and their latest collecting obsession - rocks. […]

    By Adam Cohen

    I'm a child of the 80's which gives me a very unique perspective on life, I was around to see all the amazing Saturday/Sunday cartoons, great toys and stuffed animals.

Cheese just to name a few. […]

  • Time to Play: Kids First

    By Lorraine Akemann

    What defines a healthy balance of technology in our children's lives? Often when the topic of kids and technology comes up, technology takes center stage. We sometimes become so consumed with the latest gizmo that we forget that our goal is simple - to raise healthy, well-adjusted kids. I'd like to shift from the usual technology-centric perspective and start this "kids & technology" article with that simple goal in mind: Kids First. […]

    It's the time of the year when children hear those most dreaded words, back to school time. For some parents back to school time is the best time of the year, especially after a long summer listening to their children whine "I'm bored. There is nothing to do". […]
