When trying to settle on a blog topic, I normally try to focus on positive aspects or stories about education, parenting and kids. Often, my topic is influenced by current events, political activity that affects children or my own personal experiences. Today's blog was inspired by a quote that I encountered while reading a news article: "Today is a good day for the children, because this jury said loud and clearly that parents have a duty. ... It's not just what you do; it's what you don't do."
