Money Lessons for Kids

May 14, 2012

Is Holding Your Child Back a Year for Kindergarten Start a Crime?

March 21, 2012

I was pretty annoyed by a recent 60 minutes “expose” on what they call redshirting, which evidently, refers to starting your child in Kindergarten a year later than they would normally be eligible.  They paint a portrait of these helicopter parents who are altering the flow of the timing of their child’s education to give […]
