I recently stumbled upon a wonderful early childhood blog called “Not Just Cute”. The activities and articles in this blog all come with developmental objectives, meaning their purpose is to contribute to the overall development of the child. The author of the blog, Amanda Morgan, explains that “We owe it to the children that we love and teach, to give them the chance to experience a childhood full of wonderment and to experiment with their potential in every facet of what makes them human. Not just things that are “cute”.
You can subscribe to the blog at www.notjustcute.com. I think you’ll enjoy Amanda’s warm and sensitive style of explaining how we can better understand our interactions with children as parents and as caregivers.
