“If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.” – Alfie Kohn

  • 10 Minutes of Quality Time

    Spending quality time with our children is so
    important because it strengthens our bonds
    with them, supports their development and
    satisfies their need to connect with us.
    Long days at work or around the home can
    leave us feeling exhausted, and too drained
    to engage in long periods of play activity…..
    But sometimes, even spending 10 minutes
    a day of undivided time with your child can
    reap potential benefits.

  • What is your Parenting Mindset?

    “If parents want to give their children a gift,
    the best thing they can do is to teach their
    children to love challenges, be intrigued by
    mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning.
    That way, their children don’t have to be slaves
    of praise, they will have a lifelong way to build
    and repair their own confidence”
