When a child dies, there are no words. When a child dies in a school, there are no words. When a child dies at the hands of another child, there are no words.
There. Are. No. Words.
But words are flying nonetheless. It’s the school’s fault, the parents’ fault. It’s systemic, it’s situational. It’s poor kids on drugs with no parental supervision, it’s rich kids on prescription meds with too much helicoptering. It’s race, it’s money, it’s geographic, it’s poverty. It’s everything and nothing and while certainly there is blame to lay, it’s hard to identify exactly where that blame belongs. No one knows what exactly it is that went awry once upon a time, but we do know this: we can do better.

One of the best things about our friends are the ideas that they give us about parenting. At the park, waiting for soccer practice to be over, in the car line, we are in the trenches together and I have picked up some great tips from my girlfriends. Here are some of my favorites:
My sister in law lives halfway across the country but always has great ideas about keeping our families close. Make up stories that star the far away relatives. The kids love this and just talking about family members can make them seem more a part of our lives. Also, have a grandparent record themselves reading your child’s favorite story.
