Sharing is caring... The secret to teaching is modeling. It isn't enough to just say share. We need to show our children how to acquire this valuable skill. This is a skill that we need to work on through out their lives. It will start with toys and grow into ideas. Then they will need to have the confidence to share who they are with the world. The fondest memories I have are of conversations I have had with my parents over dinner or lunch. It is neat to learn about how they became who they … [Read more...]

I also suggest you make this with your child so they have ownership of their chart. … [Read more...]

What do you do when your child is scared of starting school? The first thing I ask the parent is are you sure your child is scared? I sometimes think as parents we are scared or we have bad memories that we assume our children have the  same fears we had. If they are scared try to narrow down the reason. First, I would ask direct questions to clarify their fear. I would then start with how they are transported to school and move through their school day to determine where their fears lie. It … [Read more...]
