Time to Have "The Talk"

Time to Have "The Talk"
When children are young, we shield them from much of our "rated R" world.  But something happens that changes that.....  Your children grow up.  That's when we realize that we need to shelter young children, but discuss with teens.

If you have a high school junior, it's VERY important to visit some colleges now. It's virtually impossible to know "the real college" unless you visit it. By next fall, your child will need to start college applications. If at all possible, visit colleges while classes are in session, so you can get to know students, professors, and see the campus "in action." That means that you need to hurry, though. Colleges are finishing up their...
