THEE Answer to all my child raising issues!

One of the best things I learned that helped me dramatically through the years of raising my beautiful daughters and now helping with my amazing grandchildren is reiki (ray-key). In 1985 a friend of mine talked me into taking a Reiki I class. She convinced me that it would help the learning disabled students I worked with - so I took the class which was held at her home in Boulder, Colorado.

Well I can tell you that was a…

In its earliest forms chess was played in India during the 6th Century. It spread and developed throughout the world from the Middle East and to Europe. It became part of the education of the Persian nobility. It reached Europe through Persia, the Byzantine Empire and Arabian…

http://www.meritworld.com/

I can empathize with new parents when they talk about the seemingly-impossible task of finding great schooling that doesn’t break the bank.  Sending your preschooler off is hard enough emotionally, and becomes even more challenging when factor in your requirements: you want it to be a stimulating, educational, and reliable start and a comfortable place for your kids to be while you are at work.…

Find a Tutor - Save Some Tears

The school year has barely begun and the stress is already palpable. You feel it too? Especially if you have a high-schooler and most especially if that kid is a junior; ACTs, SATs and trying to keep those grades up for college admissions. Oh, the stress indeed. And, we’re not sure whether parents stress out more than the kids themselves, but we know that a good tutor could help…

Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. Please check back here next Monday for her last post of the September series on tips to prepare your little ones for school.

Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. Please check back here for more educational tips to prepare your little ones for school.

Sharing Precious Moments

One of my treasured memories growing up, was when I watched National Geographic with my dad. I remember sitting with him as a little girl watching programs about lions, sharks and well, the world. I believe those precious moments impacted the very core of my personality. They taught me to respect the wild and developed my ability to empathize with animals, nature and other people. Continue

Are High-Achieving Parents Pushing Kids too Hard?

Should a three year-old be getting tutored in math and reading? And can this tutoring really help give them an edge in school? Apparently the parents who have signed their tots up for Junior Kumon think so. This question is at the heart of a social media firestorm that continues to rage after a recent New York Times…

Free Mutimedia Children’s Books

I came across a wonderful site of free e-books for kids.  I think my favorite part is that, it is highlighted word for word. Though, I felt some of the voice overs where a little slow, it would be ideal for a child who is just beginning to read. This would be a great resource for homeschoolers, children who are just learning to read, and for children ranging from pre-K to about 3rd grade…
