Today’s Parenting Reminder:
PicturebookParenting gift suggestion: Because exploration encourages us all, at any age, to grow up, consider a gift this holiday that encourages exploration.
For small children: A kid-friendly bowl – one that won’t go anywhere when she begins eating with her hands and making dinnertime a full-body experience. There are some that have suction cups and some that are spill-proof due to a gyro action. Check them out.
For school-age children: A musical instrument. You can buy them second-hand or rent them to reduce your cost while your child explores whether he is really interested.
For you: A musical instrument that you once played and want to get back to or one you have always wanted to play but never had the opportunity.
