Every year when the first of January rolls around, I like to acknowledge this yearly opportunity to take stock of the past and also prepare for the future. For me, 2013 was an extremely busy year professionally. It was filled with new experiences and challenges, such as supervising a graduate student, re-entering the homecare setting while also ...
Now we all have our New Year resolutions. Some people want
to lose weight, others hope to get better organized and many desire to spend

I would like to begin today's post
by saying I hope all the dads out there who take the time to read this blog had
a wonderful Father's Day this past Sunday! Every once in a while we have a
father write in and I always enjoy listening to their perspective. Dads are
invaluable to the development of their children and moms really need their ...
