Ever notice when kids don’t have their face in a screen, they’re still thinking and talking like they do. There are times my grandson seems to be speaking a foreign language, with great enthusiasm, but it’s not anything I understand. This is just not working for me anymore. I miss my grandson.

There are plenty of times limiting the amount of time our kids are on their devices seems a hopeless, never ending battle, but it’s one we need to win. I have a few ideas to help you and the kids cut back on technology and discover there’s more life out there when they do.
Young Rembrandts is celebrating the future of art education with “We Love Our Hometown Heroes,” a commitment to the true heroes in markets across the country: service members who spend lives to keeping our communities safe so kids can learn transformative art education.
Who doesn’t want to hear they’re awesome?! For the most part, awesome is in the eyes of the beholder and as parents of visual kids we can see the awesome and appreciate all the special quirks and talents that come with being a visual learner. A creative type, whose room is pile after pile of experiments or projects, who drives us absolutely crazy trying to get out the door on time and who can make a 10 minute homework assignment last all afternoon.
