Nona Knows Kids
My goal is to give tips, tools and techniques to parents, grandparents and caregivers of little ones in those early years. I want to troubleshoot, encourage and give straightforward advice on your problems and concerns, hopefully with a little humor mixed in. I want my readers to know they are not alone in their parenting journey . My posts will focus on infants , toddlers and preschoolers. I want to show you new toys, books, products and items that might make the parenting journey a little less complicated and a lot more fun. Why am I doing this and what makes me different? I can tell you I'm educated in Early Childhood and have 40 years experience, taught preschool , ran after school programs , and had a successful home day care for over 30 years. I have worked with all different kinds of families, but the best experience and knowledge comes from hands on, down in the trenches, trial and error with my own 3 kids and grandchildren. I have always tried to create a family experience for all of the children I have taught, loved and cared for all of these years. I wanted my daycare parents to know they were "home" and when they went to work they could be completely relaxed knowing they we at "Nona's House". They could come to me with any problem or concern, day or night, to just listen , give the some encouragement or good old-fashioned advice. I hope to bring that same feeling to my readers.
