As parents, we wonder (sometimes constantly) if our kids are ready. Ready for kindergarten. Ready to ride the bus. Ready to be “dropped off” without mom. With each new stage, comes new questions of “readiness.” Sometimes we prepare them; and sometimes, they can suddenly prepare us. Whether we’re ready or not. Be ready. Be ready to be their leader, their source of information, their “at that moment” teacher of values. Some things come quickly with these kids, especially in this rapidly developing world in which we live. Be ready. I can help. I can help your kids too (and have them laugh along the way).

Read on, check out my books. There’s that . . . and more . . . awaiting to help you and your middle graders be ready . . .
