Valentine’s Day Gift Guide- 13 Gifts to Set Their Heart Aflutter on TechSavvyMama.com

The PSAT and Your Student Find out more about the PSAT in the first post in this series.

This is the first part of my series on the PSAT. It’s a high level look at the PSAT, its importance, and what it means. 

Every autumn 10th graders across the country take the PSAT at their schools. Ours was no different and for months we’ve been waiting on the scores to come in. When I took the PSAT the only thing we could do was wait....

10 Television Shows from the 80s and 90s to Stream on Netflix — TechSavvyMama.com

In the age of technology where we covet the newest and shiniest objects, sometimes it’s nice to take a step back and remember what life was like before smartphones, wifi, and social media. We may not be able to board our DeLoreans a la Marty McFly in a Back to the Future kind of way but often times favorite television shows from an era can make...

Dennis (Asher Blinkoff) and Dracula (Adam Sandler) in Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation's HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 2.
