Parenting 101

I am not a parent. 

But I can imagine that as a parent you want the best for your child. You have a vision of who you’d like your child to be. You want them to grow up to be a “good person” - usually a combination of kind,...

You're Dying

What if you went to the doctor today and were given a terminal diagnosis? What if you were told that you’re dying?
