Invest In Time Together Playing Board Games
Ask yourself honestly, when was the last time you gave your child your full undivided,
undistracted attention, time set aside just for them? How often do you make time to have
extended conversations? Even if you need to do most of the talking, that is a perfect opportunity
to pass on knowledge. Board games can play an important role in learning skills, children feel
safe when they are with their parents, they can learn to count moves, taking turns, learning rules,
they are able to ask questions. Remember as a parent you are your child's first and most
important teacher he or she will ever have.
Family Friendly Business Recognition From Early Childhood Matters goes out to Patterson's
Part Supply, for taking the time to show and
allow kids to actually pick up some bolts and
other supplies, and engaging in a conversation
about what they were used for and why. Making
them feel special and important too.
