This month we feature a variety of topics, some that feature fun, holiday-themed events like Glow at Cleveland Botanical Garden, Scuba Claus at Greater Cleveland Aquarium and others. 

In addition, read about Yoga For Kids, learn 8 Secrets of Happy Families and read about classes with the local American Red Cross to learn how to save a life.

Learn how Two Cafe & Boutique in Chagrin Falls is helping persons with exceptionalities to learn job skills so they can be integrated into the local work force.

And even though this is the holiday season, we cannot escape the very serious subject of mass shootings and felt in light of two recent events that it was timely to interview local experts for tips to help calm kids' fears when these tragic events happen.
