I love those ideas. My teenagers have yet to sit behind the wheel of a car. Although we live on the subway line and take public transit and ride bicycles and walk, I think driving is a good skill to have. Should have been practicing with them on the quiet, private road years ago. My son has a Swiss army knife, though. And they have some experience with managing fire. But, yeah, we don't give kids enough autonomy these days.

Tips for Parent-Teacher Interviews

"I have never heard of the ¨Student-led group conference¨ before and I have to agree, I would not be comfortable discussing my child in front of his or her peers either.  I have always taught in a school where the more traditional…"
