As a mother of three and a preschool educator for twenty five years I feel compelled to pay it forward in the parenting world. When I was a young parent there was an enclave of educated people who guided me as the new member of their tribe, giving me the support that I was yearning for. My hope is that in this blog I can create that community for you.

In passing the parenting torch I want to develop a sense in young families that while we are come to the table with a different approach, I believe we are all alike in what we want to accomplish as parents. Creating capable and copable children is at the top of my list, along with a close relationship that can stand the test of raising a child.

So here we go. My mission is to let you know that I have been on your side of parenting and come out on the other end with children that are now adults, capable, copable and human beings that I am proud of everyday. This did not happen without tears and pain, yet we all survived somehow.

Let me know what you want to hear about. I will let you know what I have learned as a preschool teacher, an administrator and a mom. See you next week. Peace.DSC_7192
