I have enjoyed finding lesser-known holidays to celebrate on my blog, I hope you have enjoyed learning about them. Here is another one… Did you know today is National Parents as Teachers Day? In honor of all you parents and teachers I found this informative article (originally posted on Medium.com) that I would like to share.
Parents as Advocates
Yesterday was a big day in our family. Like so many families this time of year, we sent a little one to his first day of kindergarten. Along with first day photos and excitement came a bit of anxiety, some for our new student and even some for mom.
I have been driven for many years, in all I do, to find ways to help children be more confident and successful. Writing Being Visual was a long, labor-intensive process especially for me as a visual learner. I truly believe that when we understand the way our visual kids think, we can help them be more successful. When I hear from parents that have read and applied visual learning techniques, I am enormously grateful to be a part of this important conversation.
