Bully experiment has inspiring results as concerned strangers step in

At least 1 in 3 kids will be bullied during school. UP TV set out to answer the question “in an increasingly disconnected world, who will stop the bullying?” They conducted a social experiment where they placed hidden videos across the street to secretly film two tween girls being cruel bullies to a younger classmates at a bus stop. One by one, strangers took a seat on the bench just across the way from the girls as they overheard nasty comments and insults, like “You definitely need makeup.” “Do you have any friends… ones that aren’t imaginary?” If these kind, concerned strangers are any indication, we all will put an end to bullying.  

Where To Turn After a Poor Parent-Teacher Conference

It’s that time of year…. Parent-Teacher Conferences. Some parents love hearing about their child’s successes, but some parents don’t have that experience. Instead they receive a troubling report. If you’re reading this, you probably sat in the tiny chair in front of your child’s teacher and absorbed the classroom your child occupies five days a week.  You scoured the walls looking for your child’s artwork and reminisced on your own school days for a minute. You were a little excited and a little nervous to get the scoop on how your brilliant child is excelling in school but the teacher spent about 30 seconds on your child’s strengths and the rest was about how he’s struggling. Struggling to grasp academic concepts… Struggling to stay focused… Disrupting the class… Not performing ...

What You Need to Know About Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Delivery (VBAC)

Mothers who have given birth via cesarean delivery (C-section) are not automatically reserved to deliver the rest of their children in the same way. Many of my patients come to me asking about vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) as an option for their next delivery. I often field a number of questions from my patients regarding the viability and safety of VBAC. Here are a few of the most popular: Do I qualify for VBAC? Many of my patients who gave birth via C-section qualify for VBAC. Perhaps the most important qualification for VBAC is the type of incision made on the uterus during your previous delivery. Moms wanting to give birth vaginally after a C-section must have given birth with the assistance of a low transverse incision. Performed in a majority of C-sections, a low transverse inc...

The Game is Afoot at the DMNS’ new Sherlock Holmes exhibit

 221B Baker Street has been transported to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science from now until January 31, 2016. The interactive International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes has several parts, but starts with the history of this character and and includes a replica underground train station (circa 1895) where you can receive detective’s notebooks (available in English and Spanish), and go station-to-station to learn about the different techniques and aspects for solving crimes. At each station, you stamp your detective notebook or receive a decoder (read the instructions or ask for help), because each station is different.
