Who Am I?

Sometimes I’ve found myself wondering, who am I exactly?  What is it that makes me, me?  In my younger days, I thought that I knew exactly what I was all about, but youth sometimes plays tricks on you and makes you think that the world is a much smaller place than it actually is.  As my world grew, so many things began to change and I began to see things through different eyes.  Our race, gender, education level, social class and so many other elements make us who…

Mixed Messages: When ‘White’ Doesn’t Quite Fit

Can white people call themselves ‘mixed’?  Can they see themselves as something other than white, if they appear visually white?  Sometimes, I don’t know.  All my childhood, I struggled with that label…the label of being white, but not feeling white, and not being accepted by “whites”.  To me, if feels uncomfortable to identify as white, even though I know that people see me as white, that society treats me as white.  My childhood is a confusing one and it seems a bit risky…

Think About What You Say

After two intense weeks of tantrums, screaming, flopping, crying and whining, my kids have finally had a language breakthrough.  For the past four days or so, they have not only been pointing at objects and telling me what they are, but they have been connecting abstract ideas together, using adjectives and nouns to specify their meaning, and using verbs and nouns to create basic sentences and to tell me what they are doing.



They’ve got the command down pat.



“Look,…

Developing Early Childhood Communication Skills

I have taught sign language to my son since he was six months old and I have to say it is a great tool in communication. My son started signing back at 8 months of age and his first sign was "milk". He would successfully sign this back to me when he was hungry and it was great in curbing any kind of frustration with not know why he was crying, that and routine schedules I believe have helped greatly. I won't sit here and say that my son doesn't throw some pretty good tantrums, he's 18 months… Continue

Here's How To Help Expand Your Child's Language And Vocabulary Skills: Introduce Toddlers And Preschoolers To Musical Games

Research shows that participation in musical games has many positive effects on kids.



When kids sing, they organize vowels and consonants in a rhythmic pattern which helps to build language and vocabulary skills.



Musical games also help to develop kids' fine and gross motor skills, resulting in better coordination. Putting movement and music together uses both sides of the brain.



Of course there's other reasons to introduce music into your kids' lives: It's just… Continue

Potty Mouth Mommy

I tried not to swear in front of my oldest son well into elementary school, out of fear he would repeat it and I’d get the evil eye from all the good mothers, who said things like “golly” and “oopsy daisy” when they gouged their skulls in the corner of their kitchen cabinet, or slammed their hand in their car door in the school parking lot. But James would never repeat a bad word. He just knew. Vincent, however, is a parrot. Nothing can be said around Vincent that you don’t want repeated. He… Continue
