What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
What are you proud of you kids for? Let me tell ya, I'm one proud dad. Some days, not so much...But, I'm a "glass half full" kinda dad. I look for the good my kids do. Justin, Ethan and Bella are pretty much like Aladdin - "a diamond in the rough".

Do you know an awesome Teacher? It's got a new name, but it's still a great way to salute awesome Teachers! The Sylvan Learning Cool Classroom! Nominate an awesome Teacher right now!
The best advice I was given was "Be indispensable"! Look for a need. See the need, fill the need. Even when it seems like something small and kinda overlooked or insignificant, attention to detail never goes unnoticed. It really is the small, simple things that make a difference.
Here's hwo I explain it to my boy, Ethan. He just turned 16, and started his First Job - the first step on the way to his ultimate goal: helping others by serving out country as a Marine. Ooo-rah!
