A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words


They say a pictures worth a thousand words, well I may just have to agree with that...Kids are just so darn curious about everything, the world, bugs, people, stores, animals, bed time books, etc.......why is this...how is that...can I do it.....They don't know to be timid or afraid unless they learn it from us or see it some where, otherwise they appear to be fearless. 

They are as a sponge and soak it all up..... The picture here just drips of curiosity. She is ready to learn up close and dissect it all. 

It is up to us to feed their curiosity help them along their path what ever that is.....embrace it... Take time to listen to your children see what it is that interests them.
 
She on her own went and picked up the magnifying glass and asked to be put in her chair. She was on a mission...It did not matter that she could not read the places on the globe her actions were enough for her...

How does your child show curiosity?
How do you encourage your children to explore what interests them?

Fun Simple Nontoxic Projects To Do With Your Kids.


Fun Simple Nontoxic Projects To Do With Your Kids.

Create your own nontoxic finger paint.

Mix together plain yogurt and Kool Aid. Your kids will love it and it won't hurt them if they accidentally eat it.

Tie Dye T-Shirts and Socks.

Mix a solution of Kool Aid in a container, tie a rubber band around a section of the T-Shirt. Here is a handy dandy fully instructional blog post by wikiHow  to walk you through step by step t-dye instructions.

Homemade Playdough.

We've made homemade playdough for years. When the kids were little we kept playdough on hand for creative time. This recipe from Instructables is just like the recipe we like to use. It has colorful step by step instructions. If you don't have any playdough toys simply supplement with items from your kitchen. Rolling pins, measuring spoons, measuring cups and cookie cutters work great!

9 Tips For Enhancing the Educational Experience of Your Child


Tips for Enhancing the Educational Experience of Your Child 


    • Ask your child to identify three goals for the school year (Academic, Health, Financial).
    • Sign up for a long term volunteer opportunity in their area of interest.
    • Make sure your child’s learning happens outside of the school walls as well as inside (libraries, museums, clubs, etc.).
    • If they have expressed interest in a particular career or field, provide them with exposure to the career or field as a reminder of the bigger picture and provide a mentor/support individual from the field.  Sometimes this also serves as a “reality check” in terms of career requirements and commitment.
    • Take advantage of free academically supportive websites such as Khan Academy, The College Board

Parenting Coming Out Of The Dark Ages?



We found this video so pleasing, especially since we reviewed Dr. Shefali's book The Conscious Parent in 2010 and hosted a live chat with her in March 2011. It's so magical to us that conscious parenting is finally taking center stage. Like we've said before we've raised our children this way starting 30 years ago. Since Dr. Shefali appeared with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday it is now getting the recognition that we feel is needed for our children, parents and society. 

We resonate with the words Sabrina Brightstar talks about in this video. She's right, we are all responsible for the children. Our beliefs, thoughts, ability to love ourselves and evolve does have an impact on today's children. We hope all you parents will take a look at this video. It is time to change the world by changing how we parent.
