You Are Not Alone: How the new short film “6:22” is shining a light on the invisible struggle faced by so many.

Nearly every day, you cross paths with someone who is at their lowest moments, but you’ll never know it. While presenting a brave face to the outside world, they mask a seemingly inescapable darkness within.

Teach Them Well and Let Them Lead the Way: For the last 54 years, the Children’s Center has been quietly leading a revolution in early childhood development.

Teach Them Well and Let Them Lead the Way: For the last 54 years, the Children’s Center has been quietly leading a revolution in early childhood development.

Ask any business owner you know, particularly anyone who owns a restaurant, and they’ll tell you in no uncertain terms: We are in the midst of a labor crisis on this island. Companies can’t find workers, because workers can’t find the support they need to work here. There are no easy answers, either, making this crisis one that may take years to solve. And while the debate rages over things like affordable housing and fair wages, one aspect of this crisis has been overlooked: the children.

Of course, you came to Hilton Head Island for the beach and maybe golf, tennis or pickleball. But what else is there to do? Plenty! Whether it’s tooling around town on a bike, flying through the trees on a zipline, racing a go-kart, reeling in your supper, dolphin watching, kayaking, paddle boarding, playing putt-putt golf, or riding a horse … beyond the beach, a colossal outdoor playground awaits.

The Journey I Could Never Have Scripted

The Journey I Could Never Have Scripted

I didn’t fit in much as a kid. I was as comfortable playing point guard as I was playing Dungeons and Dragons, and thusly, neither the jocks nor the nerds knew what to make of me. So, they both picked on me, and I was an easy mark because I let them see they got to me.

Two-Wheelin’ Fun: Ride your bicycle on Hilton Head Island without taking an unscheduled tour of the ER.

Summer has arrived! Grab the sunscreen, hit the beach, light up the BBQ grill, fill the cooler, or hop on your bike—all things we do to celebrate the days of summer without even thinking.

How to Get Divorced

How to Get Divorced

Though I have never sought a divorce, several friends and family members have, and each have shared insights into their experience both during and after their divorce. Whether it was an “amicable” Gwyneth Paltrow-Chris Martin consciously uncoupling divorce, or it was more of a Kathleen Turner-Michael Douglas in War of the Roses divorce, undoubtedly one distinct fact remained: Divorce is hard. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” said one friend, who in addition to being a competitive mountain biker, also survived thyroid cancer prior to his divorce.

You Are Not Alone: Reading this may lead to children!

You Are Not Alone: Reading this may lead to children!

For some, the idea of fostering or adoption has been dinging in your heart like a seatbelt alarm, loud and unignorable: the pitter patter of tiny feet, or a pair of size 13s by the front door, or a pantry full of Pop-Tarts for five siblings who get to stay together because you came along. If you think this doesn’t apply to you, give it 60 seconds, because the list of ways you can make a permanent difference might surprise you. Fair warning: reading this may lead to children.

Adventures in Homeschooling

Adventures in Homeschooling

“My kids are literally climbing the walls; “my children learned to write their names in Sharpie all over our living room”; “I’m cherishing every moment”; “I’m really questioning traditional school.” These are all statements I’ve received from parents who have been homeschooling their children for over three weeks due to COVID-19.

Never underestimate the ability it has to rid the body of pathogens.
