CurrClick offers quite a few live online classes, they are mostly for pay though.
DD sometimes does that too, narrates her life. Sounds like a future author to me. Have you asked him if he wants to tell stories, that you could perhaps transcribe or video?

This. You can't believe how much this upsets me. An important part of the parenting that MDC tries to uphold involves respecting children as people. And accepting that their feelings are real, however irrational they may seem to you. That action (of...

DD is 5.5 and in the last few weeks has been having big temper tantrums.
