Parents doing Parent things

A Parent Power Revolution Has Begun

Something absolutely wonderful happens when you dare to turn off the television, refuse to let your kids play video games, and flat out don’t buy into the pushy commercialization of a toy-FULL childhood…

Two year olds play match-the-cap-to-the-bottle games (which streghthen math concepts such as estimation and measurement) for 20 minutes and then, all by themselves, figure out bottles are also great castle building blocks!

They also build houses in the living room where they eat breakfast in “private” and feel free to bring toys in and let their imagination soar.

By the way, the house building has been brought back to life by the story Three Little Pigs. Pretend play and “theater” role play are brain building, pre-literacy activities that cost you very little but gift them life.

Parent Power! Not only CAN we do this. But we are doing it every day. From my heart to yours, thank you.
