There is a secret to taming a temper that world-wide traffic controllers are already aware of.  See, the use the same device/concept to ‘tame’ their traffic issues: traffic circles.  No, I haven’t lost my mind.  Seriously, the concept of a traffic circle runs parallel...

No, this is not a math equation.  (Okay, it is, but that’s not the point here).  We’re talking about behaviors and noticing them.  Take a minute and think about your child.  Think about the last time they did something good or nice. Perhaps they put away a book without...
