“Papa, what’s your battle plan?” My granddaughter Natalia has asked me that question for the three years we’ve been having imaginary galactic battles. Her army is mainly Pokémon, popular characters that come to us from Japan. They have strengths and weaknesses, and the capacity to “evolve” and gain in ability and talent. Natalia is also aided by the usual assortment of additional friends: fairies, ponies, and favorite stuffed animals all lined up on the side of goodness and truth. More

It was painful to teach the work so well and not be practicing myself.  Omega: Why do you think so many people hide their true selves? More

My dad always helped me put communication at the forefront of everything that I did. More

More
7 Guidelines for Establishing a School Program
Adolescence is a time of tremendous change for children physically and can be particularly intense emotionally. It is also a time when they are deeply engaged in self-discovery and exploring the inner workings and capacities of their identity. More
An Interview With Jean Kilbourne
Omega: Today the average American sees 3,000 advertisements a day. What’s the impact of that and how do we respond?

Television, magazines, websites, and newspapers are all rounding up audiences to be sold to advertisers. That’s their business model. That’s the point. More
