My Top Five: Rich Legacy for the Kids (Lifestyle)

The second item in my “Rich Legacy for Kids” series is minimalism and sustainable living. I would like to raise my children knowing that quantity does not equate success, wealth or happiness. They don’t need a lot. I’d like them to realize early that they can do more with less and be beautiful/handsome in simplicity.…… Continue reading My Top Five: Rich Legacy for the Kids (Lifestyle)

Limiting Kids’ Time on Gadgets
