With widespread access to information, kids are exposed to bad news and hate despite our best efforts to limit their exposure.

Learn tools to create worthwhile relationships, an optimistic world and character building techniques that can lessen anxiety our kids experience and create a more optimistic child.

She now works from home as a freelance graphic designer and a chauffeur to her 3 busy kids. "Working on TipsFromTown has been a wonderful outlet for me. It renewed my love of publishing where I can design colorful, enticing pages online and allows me to share the things I love about being a mom." Heather grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, a place that still is near and dear to her. " After living in Brooklyn for 18 years and studying Graphic Design at Pratt Institute, she now lives in the Jersey burbs. "I love living so close to NYC, but in my heart, I'm an Ohio girl."
