Take the computer as a prominent example. As computing power became more proficient and affordable, many schools and universities looked to integrate the new technology into the classrooms, offering students and teachers a new way of accessing and interacting with the curriculum.

5 Steps to Teach Your Child a Foreign Language

 



When your child starts to learn a foreign language before they’re 10 years of age there is still a good chance that they can get up to native level. This is because, before that age, children can still reform the sounds they hear, understand and can form without an accent. That’s essential to learning a…

The Best Way To Help Babies Learn

The Best Way To Help Babies Learn

Like most new moms, I was a crazy worrier about Baby Bear. Was she developing properly? Learning everything "on time". What was she supposed to learn next? How could I help her learn? Honestly, I was obsessed (click here to read a letter to all mamas who think they don't do enough).…

The know-it-all in our household

I have made two key points very clear to my son over the past year:

  1. Mommy is not an octopus.
  2. Mommy does not know everything.

The first concept is an acknowledgement that I can't do everything at once, so if he sees me…

Becoming the teacher's pet (when you are a parent)

Right before Valentine's Day, I received several brightly colored pieces of paper letting me know that parents were invited into the classroom to secretly decorate their child's desk for February 14.…

No time like the present

My son is doing his math homework on the computer. Today's lesson centers on the clock. He dutifully types in the time that each clock face represents. Since he is pretty good at this, he whizzes through all the questions.…

Parents don't have all the Answers

 A lovely evening of Pretty Little Liars watching with my Lil mama bought upon some great conversation and as I fell asleep last night this is what I thought of again. So I wanted to talk about it with you.

Here's is a BIG question...

Should I admit I don’ have all the answers? I don’t really know everything after all?

Would it be so terrible of me to actually “be human”?…

You gotta know when to push them (part 2)

On Monday, I shared some of the ways that I push my son so he learns about money and doesn't give up on trying new things. And that is all fine and dandy. But the real challenge for me will be pushing him academically without become a crazy, overbearing Mom in the process.…

When it is too loud to think

My son recently went to a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. When I was a child, Chuck E. Cheese was a wonderland of fun games and chaos. Now that I am an adult, I think of it as a casino for children.…

Cooking at home

This past weekend, I helped my son make pancakes.



I phrased it that way on purpose, as this was the first time I let him take the lead in making pancakes while I supervised. Up to this point, I would only let him do the prep work and stir ingredients together. But this time I let him work with the batter on…

Returning to pen and paper

I still use pen and paper for a lot of things: Shopping lists, stories for my other blog, notes at work and planning events. Since I went to college when laptops weren't a thing, it still feels more natural for me to take notes with pen and paper than by typing them. Also, I feel that I tend to remember things better if I write them down.…

Learning Disabilities

I am a chatter box. I have a lot of conversations, in my travels through my daily day. I have, at times, heard a lot of misinformation about learning disabilities. So I'm going to give every one some super BASIC info on learning disabilities. Knowledge is power man. That way you don't look like a ding dong when you are stating something at a wine and cheese party.

Why I ignore most of my son's homework

My son has been in school since he was six weeks old. Not daycare. School. Before he reached preschool age, he had endured extensive homework requests to put together collages of various themes, build beanstalks, retell stories and (once) to build a robot. And we did it all because education is important to me.…

What I've Learned About Breastfeeding

Little B is almost 3 months old. That means every single day, multiple times a day, I've put her at my breast to feed and nourish her. After the first few goes at it, you tend to get to know the ropes and it becomes second nature. Here are six things that I've learned from my very short time breastfeeding.

It can hurt

But then it gets better! For the first 6 weeks or so, every single latch made me wince in pain.…

Everything I know is wrong

I have tried standing more during the day. Because I once read that sitting too much was bad for my health. I tried standing more at home, at work and when I went outside to play with my son. I stood. But, it turns out that I didn't need to.



Another study has just declared that…
