"The Superhero Princess blog is the official blog of the Sanford Harmony Program. This program is being developed to enhance how boys and girls treat and think about each other during childhood, laying the foundation for harmonious relationships in the future. Superhero Princess, written from a parent’s perspective, shares the same mission as the Sanford Harmony Program – to strengthen connections between boys and girls. Superhero Princess represents the potential that exists for our boy and girls when we encourage them to come TOGETHER and engage in meaningful and positive ways. Through anecdotes infused with research and theory, we explore the social, emotional and relationship development of children."

"What are the rights of children? What is our responsibility, as citizens of the world, to defend them? A uniquely qualified panel of authors and activists, including Khmer Rouge Genocide survivor Arn Chorn-Pond, discuss the global state of children’s rights. Drawing on both scholarship and personal experience, in this “Year of Janusz Korczak,” commemorating 70 years since the children’s rights pioneer perished at Treblinka with his charges from the Warsaw Ghetto orphanage, the panel will explore the history of the Children’s Rights Movement and how past atrocities can inform contemporary advocacy on local, national, and global scales, paying particular attention to ongoing violations in Uganda by the Lord’s Resistance Army."

"The Harry Potter series: Nobody would ever merely describe this series as “books about bullying,” but bullying relationships of every kind are woven throughout all seven texts. Hogwarts is cluttered with a wide variety of power dynamics—between older students and younger, between professors, between professors and students—the list goes on. Older readers will appreciate how J.K. Rowling deftly re-casts her aggressors into targets, then into bystanders, and back again, and vice versa."
