From October 16-19, 2014, the Girl Scouts of the USA will bring our 2014 National Council Session/53rd Convention to Salt Lake City, Utah.
The sobering news that Olympic medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen had been severely injured in an accident, caused me to think about she-roes through American history who overcame adversity and changed America
Philanthropy and charitable donations are back! Americans once again gave more in 2013 than in the previous year. As Americans, we supported causes we cared about with gifts both big and small.
Mr. Robert M. Gates President Boy Scouts of America Dear Mr. Gates: I extend my heartfelt congratulations on the occasion of your inaugural as the 3...
Here are a few groundbreaking women who blazed the trail for women in the 21st century. We thank them for blazing the trail for us.
There's Cheese... and then there's cheese, and then, if the cheese is in your snax, it's probably cheeze. Cheeze isn't Cheese, or cheese. It's those...
Every spring it's the same story. There I am, just sitting on the couch watching TV and deciding which Real Housewife I'd kill first, when the doorbell rings. And on the other side of the door awaits Evil.
There's no better way to recap March 2014 than with a RAP! Ukraine, Malaysia flight #MH370, Obamacare, Selfies, St. Patricks Day, Kissing Strangers, C...
I doubt the Girl Scouts, despite their noble history of supporting LGBT inclusion and girls' empowerment, is going to back out of this deal. And Mattel's unlikely to yank the sponsorship, especially since publicity -- pro or con -- can only be good for the Barbie brand.
I'm the entire Ban Bossy campaign and controversy rolled into a mom.
I'm all for encouraging more girls to become leaders. But in my mind, the Ban Bossy campaign is focused on the wrong people for the wrong reasons.
Congrats to Vladimir Putin! His voter tampering has succeeded! (It's easy to vote the "right" way when you've got a gun pointed at your head). Just another day of democracy-in-action for good ol' Vlad.
I've been called bossy before and I am sure I will be called bossy again. I actually take it as a compliment.
As parents and educators, one of the most powerful things we can do is give our girls the opportunity to start asking questions around personal purpose, leadership and values earlier in life.
Censorship doesn't teach our children to be leaders, it teaches them that to blame and exclude is the answer... and exclusion is the opposite of what the Ban Bossy movement is supposed to be about.
We can campaign to ban the word bossy but the most important thing we need to do is to teach girls to be a Boss. We have to teach them to walk in their God given talents, skills and abilities. By doing this we are essentially highlighting skills that will make them productive citizens in our society.
