Mental Illness Dangers In America’s Teens

After one of America’s most deadly mass school shooting recently in Parkland, FL,  parents, children, and families around the country are asking “How did this happen?” and “How could this have been prevented?” Many have jumped on the bandwagon urging for restricting gun control rights, and yes, I think we can all agree that a 19-year old with a history ...

America’s Public Schools – Our Kids at Risk

Yes I said it.  Our kids are at risk in America’s public schools.  On Valentine’s Day in Parkland, Florida, a student shot and killed former classmates. So far 17 people are reported dead, 14 of whom are students. Fourteen families will not see their teenagers alive again.  I can’t imagine the despair, the horror and heartbreak.  The news is just ...

Boredom Never Killed Anyone But Avoiding It Has

Alain de Botton, British Author and Philosopher extraordinaire, has an interesting idea about addiction. In one of his publications, he describes addiction as the following:  “There are, in truth, far more addicts than we think. Indeed, if we look at the matter squarely: we are pretty much all addicts… addiction is the manic reliance on something, ANYTHING, in order to ...

Your Family Is Biased. It’s Not Your Fault, Blame The Filter Bubble

When you search Google or scroll through your Facebook feed, (or if you’re checking your children’s social media feeds), you’ve likely noticed ads or posts that seem explicitly tailored for you.  That’s because most search engines and social networks are built to collect data on preferences (based on search history, the things you click on and posts) and “push” more ...

Bring Back The Pledge Of Allegiance

One of the things I love about America is our freedom to express ourselves. It doesn’t matter if I agree with your opinion or not – you have every right to say (or not say) whatever your truth is and that’s a powerful thing to have. It’s a right we take for granted often. It’s a right many countries under ...

Immigration – For Want of the American Dream

The current immigration conversation is a topic I am passionate about. After all, my family came here from Cuba in 1966, when I was a wee tot. Once Castro’s policies started to tighten its grasp around the throat of the Cuban people, a large exodus ensued from the island nation with thousands leaving by boats and landing on Florida’s shores/beaches. ...

Unpolitically correct opinion: we’re raising a bunch of whiny sissies and we have nobody to blame but ourselves.I remember the first time I described my kid as durable.I was with a coworker and it was in passing.
