At home, you’re meticulous about what you feed yourself and your children. The same should apply to their school lunches, no matter how much you detest the task of prepping meals and popping them into brown paper bags. Don’t worry, you’re not alone — we all dread it.
For the musically inclined, parents should be paying attention to what their little ones listen to because it is critical to a young mind’s development. “Ready or Not!,” the latest album from The Not-Its! and released on Sept. 21, displays positive and relatable themes to children through an indie, or rather, “kindie,” sound.
