    Posted 9:01 PM 7/5/2014 by 6500 Feet Fit

    More screen time for teens! I know! I’m not really advocating more screen time for your kids, just time used more productively. As a parent of teens myself I feel OK about screen time if it’s not just gaming or aimless Netflix viewing ( I do love aimless Netflix viewing (More)

    How well do you know your family?

    Posted 8:00 PM 4/29/2014 by My719Mommy Blogger - Jessica

    How often does your kid come home from school and you ask, "How was your day?" only to get a one word response like, "OK". Or maybe you ask, "What did you learn today?" and get, "Nothing".
