  • Parents should share parenting

    Months ago, a concerned grandmother came to my office.
    It was a Monday morning, and I was busy, but I could tell by the distressed look on her face that she needed someone to talk to.
    She proceeded to tell me about a situation involving her son and his custody battle involving his children. The court had ruled that he could only see his children every other weekend.
    She was devastated.
    Up to that point, she had been extremely involved in her grandchildren’s lives, and she was convinced this was going to change things dramatically.

  • State legislature reviews school safety

    Last week, the Department of Education released its latest annual report on school safety, a study that gives the public a truly comprehensive look at the discipline issues our students, teachers, staff and administrators face.
    Overall, the news is good. Nearly 90 percent of the 660,000 students who attend public schools were not involved in any infractions in 2013-14, and of the remainder, only a small percentage was engaged in violent behavior.
