Hi everyone, I’m Janice and I have been advocating for children all of my adult life.
Children add so much to our lives. Our choice to raise children, in my opinion, is the most important decision we make in our lives. When we have children we do not give up our entire lifestyle for them, we modify our lifestyle to include and nurture them. Vacations and travel were part of our life before children so we will continue to engage in travel with some modifications to incorporate our toddlers into our lifestyle. Which will enhance our lives and our children’ s lives as well.
The reason that I have created this site is to help new parents and families in creating a nurturing environment for their children to grow and thrive. As a teacher and parent for more then 25 years I have many experiences and information that I can share to make your experience a little easier. There was knowledge that I learned in my education about children that when I applied it as a parent it didn’t work quite like the book or professor indicated! I want to share those experiences with you.
There is not one right answer for dealing with children of any age, especially toddlers. So if you are facing an issue with traveling with your toddler, or any other issues you are facing as you raise your toddler, please share those on this site. I love to interact with families that are striving to create the best experiences for their toddlers. I love feedback and wish to interact with about issues that are relevant to your family
So about me….
Family time and activities have always been important to me since I was a little girl. I loved my family and was fortunate to have parents that, although not perfect, provided a loving and nurturing environment for us to grow up in. As I started thinking about a career I wanted to do something that would impact families and make there life better. So I pursued a degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. There were many aspects to that major that related it family life, but the one I was most attracted to was child development. So that became my emphasis over the years.
The study of children is scope of history is very new. We have actually looked at children as different then adults in only the last 100 years. Before that time they were viewed as little adults and treated as such. There a those that still believe that children are just smaller versions of adults. The research shows that statement couldn’t be further from the truth. Parents can learn a lot from that research to make raising their children a little less of a mystery or a trial and error endeavor.
As a parent I had the advantage of years of education in child development. I found that background to be very helpful and a real confidence boost in difficult and frustrating situations that I found myself in while raising my toddlers. I want to bring some of that information to you and help you to be more at ease in your new role as a parent. When you understand some of the why’s behind your toddlers actions you become more realistic in your expectations and be better prepared to anticipate some of their reactions. The result can create a more stress free situation.
You will encounter many challenging times with your toddler, I would be more than happy to connect. Simply leave your comment below and make sure you visit my site regularly as I am always updating it with “ideas” and “information” that I come across that I know you will find interesting.
Thank you for dropping by my site and many happy and memorable days ahead for you and you new family!
