From KUOW Public Radio:
On a sunny Saturday morning, a dozen moms and dads sat around tables in a White Center elementary school library, looking at a PowerPoint slide of a little boy pouring syrup on his pancakes.
"What do you think would happen if I said nothing at all? How much would he put on there?" asked speaker Kellie Morrill, director of the Educare of Greater Seattle P-3 campus.
"Way too much," the parents replied.
From WVEC Nofolk:
If you stopped by the park at the Oakleaf Forest housing community Wednesday, you’d think it was just one big party.
