How to disagree- By the Kid President

We love this young social activist, Brad, who has been at it for 4 years! As he says, “Love changes everything. So fill the world with it.” Check out this video, which might be helpful for yourself, as well as your child!




Time to Give

What a great time to get together and help those in need. A group of West Orange residents gathered their children and made sandwiches for the homeless who live in and around Newark Penn Station.  Think of ways that you and your family can make a difference this holiday season and share with us!


Moore Love: Pass it On Program

This week, the non-profit organization Moore Love launched it kindness education program in all of the West Orange schools. Children are encouraged to do kind acts and then pass along their kindness card to that person and then on to the next, etc. What a way to illustrate to our children that kindness spreads and can affect each and every person it touches.
