The Bear and The Bow

Here’s my professional tip of the day: If your child is afraid of bears, you may want to skip the movie Brave. My child, I thought, was scared of only one thing—spiders. Teeny-weeny, small, medium-sized, climbing up water spouts, it doesn’t matter. If it has legs, she doesn’t want to…
