“A great stocking stuffer for parents, teachers, grandparents, babysitters and other childcare providers”—that’s what Maya Creedman, mother of two, said about Plus It! today in San Francisco’s Examiner.com. She’s an educational consultant, a teacher, and a writer on parenting and education—so she should know!
Then she says, it’s a “pocket-sized book perfect for a purse or glove compartment…” Yes!
Creedman knows that “parents have an incredible opportunity to further their child’s development and education in day-to-day activities and routines,” and that Plus It! is about exactly that opportunity.
I’m thrilled with this online review. Read the whole review here.
An excellent resource for parenting tips, especially for parents of tweens and teens, is the email newsletter and blog of Dr. Peter Montminy. He’s a father of four children—and a consulting child psychologist, passionate about emotional well-being of kids and families. He’s got soul, he’s got heart, he’s got experience, he’s got training, he’s got joy.
He’s done extensive work with adolescents and their parents and teachers, and has developed teleclasses, a coaching program, free information, an email newsletter, and more.
I like his tagline, “Guiding school-age kids to life-time success,” and his description of himself as a family wellness coach. I like that he lives with his wife and family in the woods of Pennsylvania (what a great place to raise children).
