Best Story

On of my favorite stories is how a young man of seven was chosen as the leader at the next family meeting. When asked about the agenda, he said about his younger sister, "Katelyn keeps hitting me in the arm and THAT's going on the agenda"!!!

Origin Story

My a-ha moment was seeing my juniors and seniors insecure and uneducated about the life skills that allow young folks to go out in the world with courage and confidence. I am also a veteran parent and teacher of Love and Logic. That's how We Teach Life Skills was born.
