It’s really hard for me to believe this, but next month marks 50 years since my high school graduation (boy, I must have been a young graduate?)! Yet, I still remember that evening. We marched into the auditorium of Hinton High School (Hinton, W.Va.) to the tune of Pomp and Circumstance, 166…

Perhaps I should say, fathers can be parents, too. I have had many discussions with fathers who want to be the best father they can be, but feel they don’t know how…have not been prepped well, not invited in to be a partner, or just didn’t feel they could do the job especially with the girl …

Remember when you first heard of COVID-19, and a couple of months ago we were beginning to hear of possible cancellations, postponements, orders to stay home, business closings and so on? Who would have thought that we’d still be where we are today, still in our homes, still seeing the news …
