As a divorced dad, spending time with my kids is important, but most employers don’t share my values on this issue. They never have. Parents are no longer willing to sell the time we have with our kids for chump change. Can our society and economy finally change to support this need?

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! With my late-talking son almost finishing another school year, I wanted to post what I sent my son’s teacher. She’s great!

It definitely came in handy during the pandemic, and they’re doing research to find out the benefits! Take a look if you want to honor our essential workers this week.
