Four Resources to Teach Kids About The Real Meaning of Easter

How can you teach the resurrection story to kids this Easter season? Unlike Christmas, the story behind Easter celebration can be a little difficult for parents to teach their kids. You would even agree with me that every parent should delay particularly, “The Passion of Christ”; (the movie that narrates the horrible violence that Jesus Christ endured before His death on the cross) until the kids are older.

Happy Mother’s Day: A Tribute to My Mother – Written by Our Co-founder @9ijakids

If you still have a mother, it will do you a lot of good to cherish her and be present in her life. As Mother’s Day approaches, I am so thankful for my late mother.  At the later part of her life as she became old and frail, a role reversal became necessary as i took on the role of Mother to care for her even though she was a small and mighty “dragon lady” back in her hay days.
