Bringing up children in today’s world can be complicated, as a parent we make decisions that could impact them for life.

By the time our children start school today, they should already be able to repeat a sentence that is six or more words long, describe actions, events, enjoy telling stories, know basic shapes, be able to recognize and say the alphabet, understand categories well, such as, “a dog is an animal”, should be able to play board games, do crafts and other constructive projects.

With another school year coming to an end, I know we’re all looking forward to being outdoors and vacationing. Just try to keep in mind that the next school year will be upon us before we know it, so it’s important that you take the time to prepare your children for the challenge ahead. I’m certain with a little time, encouragement and the right educational toys and games that they will be prepared and enjoy their new adventure.
