Research continues to support that reading benefits children of all ages in a variety of ways. According to studies, reading helps build your child’s vocabulary, helps develop his imagination, and increases his ability to communicate. In fact, there is a direct relationship between how many words an infant hears in a day and his language skills, even his IQ. That being said, reading is crucial in exposing your baby or young child to a variety of words.
I had the wonderful pleasure of visiting many schools this month as well as received MANY pictures submitted to the site and to my e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have another winner for the November gift basket! Here she is:
Here is what our wonderful 3rd grade winner, Paulina has to say:
First of all, start young. Studies show that reading to your child should begin before the age of six months, as soon as they’re able to enjoy the images and pictures inside of their books. Collect some board books, either buying them at the bookstore or getting some hand-me-downs from friends and family. All children have varying attention spans and you should keep in mind not to push too far past these limits in their attention and not force them to read, as children tend to dislike things they are forced to do not on their own determinism. Every child is different and sometimes it takes time for his interest in reading to develop and his attention span to lengthen.
Chances are, you have an idea of just how important you are as a mother in your household. For instance, what if you were to go out of town for a week? Who would get the kids ready for school, take them to soccer or ballet, help them with their homework? And could you imagine the state of the house after such a length of time? As helpful as your spouse or children may be, without having Mom around to spur them through their daily chores, how often would they do the dishes or remember to take out the trash? And then there’s the matter of how they would feed themselves. Clearly, Mom, if it weren’t for you, your household would probably collapse.
I was sent this lovely article written and published recently after a brief interview
by reseacher and writer Robert Bell.
I thought I’d share this with all of you
It’s time for dinner and you’ve called to your children three times so far to turn off the TV and come to the table to eat. You start using threats of coming into the living room yourself to turn off the television, to ban TV for the rest of the night, or to eat their dinners for them, but they still don’t come. Sound familiar?
Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does. Even though last season’s hit shows were full of stuff you didn’t want your kids to watch or even know about, you turn on the television to find that this season’s shows are even more shocking. One of the best decisions I made years ago for myself and for my family was to cut down on television drastically.
In addition to my work with Danny the Dragon, next week I have a wonderful lineup of 3 radio shows, covering the important topics of positive parenting and happy homes, the task of being a successful mother and role model and living a gluten-free lifestyle.
I seldom meet or speak to a man that is SO into family that he devotes his life to spreading his views, hopes and dreams as an author by helping families to improve or be happier. I got goose-bumps just speaking to this man over the phone, though I was thrilled to meet this man, and I felt like I had an instant friend.
