The other day, I saw someone post a question in a parenting forum (Facebook group) online. She asked people to give their opinions about Kindermusik and another program for kids that is well known locally and abroad.

Last week, I wrote a post for World Moms Blog about my birthday wish for my children. Lately, as I watch the evening news filled with updates about senseless crimes and violence -- including the ongoing fighting in Zamboanga -- I find myself struggling not to feel worried and fearful.
