This section is all about parenting.
Parenting is a wide open topic. I am counting on the idea that my readers will comment on posts and spread their wisdom to all of us. There is no handbook on parenting your child but there is a lot of research and guidance we can study to help us parent.
Mike and I are parents. He is a grandparent. We made our mistakes raising our kids. Things we talk about and wish we could do over. That is one of the reasons I am writing these posts to you. Please consider that I am trying to help you avoid the same pitfalls that we fell into.
Parenting Matters! Parents are the cornerstone of every family. Parents need to take care of themselves before they can take good care of their children. You might think I am old fashioned when I talk about some hot topics, like limiting “screen time” for kids and early bedtimes.
Teaching has given me a peek into many types of family life. I am blessed that Mike continues to teach and I am still around the classroom and children. I have a different experience in his classroom as I do not carry any responsibility. I am observing parents in a new way.
Please let me know if you have a hot topic you would like some research about. I research every subject before I write about it. I don’t always list the resources because this site is about helping parents and teachers do the best for kids that they can, not writing formal papers.
Thanks for coming and for visiting Power Educating!
