Missing Summer Camp? How to Deal With It
Summer camp alumni will be quick to tell you that most campers spend their time away from their cabins counting down the days until the next season.

It’s Their Life (and Ours Is Ours)
Having three adult daughters, I find watching their lives as a parent a wonderful pastime, but one not without its cares. Each is different to the other two. Each one looks for different things in their partners. And there are differences in their interests, too. As sisters they’re quite different, and that diversity is something to celebrate. As a parent those cares sometimes morph into concerns, but not because of who they are or for the decisions they make; it’s just the domain of the parent.
