You’re never too old to stop learning…
It has been a real treat to visit some of our local schools for this, our first Education Issue. We interviewed several local educators to get their thoughts on why they were moved to become teachers and asked them to share the moment when they knew they had made a difference in a student’s life. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for some funny interviews coming out the first of the month.
In an article on behavior modification, Linda Hopkins interviews a retired principal on how to communicate better with your children (and spouse), thus minimizing stress in personal relationships. One quote sort of struck me in this piece: “Behavior management begins with boundaries, which includes setting limits, building structure, setting expectations, recognizing cause and effect, and reorganizing external circumstances that impact your situation.” As a person who sometimes finds it difficult to identify and communicate my own needs, I find this to be good advice in all personal relationships—from the home to the workplace and even in friendships. Check out this story on page 43.
Becca Edwards tackles some tough parenting topics with licensed counselor Dr. Debi Lynes in “A Parent’s Guide to Bullying” (page 47) and “Let’s Talk about Sex” (page 51). These are never easy subjects to broach, especially for parents who are watching their kids grow up at an alarmingly fast rate due to cell phones and social media.
Which is best for your child—public or private school? Linda Hopkins presents some pros and cons of each and highlights some questions to ask yourself on page 61. This issue also covers a brand new school in Bluffton for students wishing to pursue the performing arts (page 54), along with a group of teachers who are teaming up for some after-school tutoring (page 65).
This issue also features two fashions spreads, with plenty of pretty spring options to restock your wardrobe just in time for festival and wedding season. We can’t wait to see everyone at the RBC Heritage April 11-17! It’s been a minute since we’ve gotten to put on our plaid and Lily Pulitzer dresses and strut around Harbour Town … and we are here for it.
Until next month!
