Live with Kelly and Ryan

Because it is emotional when it’s your child...

Kelly got emotional hearing about Joaquin's progress at his new high school.



Can dyslexia be a superpower? ABSOLUTELY! Here's a sweet encounter between my daughter and some girls at camp last week.

Finger Exerciser & Hand Strengthener (3 Pack(Light+Medium+Heavy))

kids develop hand strength for fine motor skills. Swiping and touch pads don’t quite cut it. Handwriting requires hand strength and strong fine muscles for stamina. Just as reading is linked to academic success, so is handwriting.
