WTIO Bucket List

It’s happening. I’m going crazy in quarantine. Although things are starting to open up in phases, I can’t help but realize that a full opening of the world and the ability to do the things you once loved to do without worry may be far-fetched right now. Now that I’ve had all this spare time,…

Please. For the sake of those you love and care about who get triggered by violence, do not share videos of brutal violence and death.

What Happens When your Child Plays Favorites?

So, a couple weekends ago, my daughter was very sad about something. She is so much like me that it is almost irritating, because I constantly asked her what was wrong and she would say “nothing”, even though her face clearly was singing a different tune. I didn’t want to badger her; but I needed…
