I Teach My Boys to Cry

This is a cruel world, no doubt about it. Arguably one of the more difficult times to raise children. Instead of sugar-coating, we tend to grab for the armor. Protect them. Shield them.

Ask a Mom: A Banker’s Tips to Help You Reach Your Financial Goals–Part One

I love the holidays, but especially the irony of Black Friday. Immediately following our nation’s holiday celebrating Gratitude and Mindfulness, we jump headfirst into a frenzy of must-have toys and super sales.
