Having little people in your life can be a challenge at times. Regardless if you are a parent, caregiver, teacher, social worker, aunt or uncle, to name a few of the many roles we play as an adult in the life of a child, your role is an important one. Many studies show that the first three years of a child’s life is crucial in establishing a strong cornerstone for learning. This doesn’t mean that if the child in your life is older than three, all is lost, but it does mean that there is no time like the present to participate in your child’s learning process.
I spend a lot of time researching case studies, articles and basically anything I can get my hands on, that give insight and opinion on developmental stages and learning platforms for children of all ages. Two common threads found are the importance of communication and collaboration. I will be posting blogs on parenting, teaching and other sites I think you would like to view for enhancing your knowledge base and sites that will allow you an opportunity to collaborate with others who have similar questions and concerns.
I am encouraging the mom groups Iam working with on the research for my book to start sending questions or inquiries that can be researched and help provide resources for. Please join in this collaboration and send me your questions and comments. If you view one of these blogs and they are not appropriate to our discussion, let me know so I can delete it and in return, if you view a FABULOUS blog…share! Celebrate the sharing of knowledge in education, so all can participate in making a difference in the lives of our children, our future.
