Give Your Child an EDGE in Life!

by DonnaG Thursday, October 2, 2014

 

Many parents struggle with what are the best options for their preschool aged children.

Consider that age three is when children develop trust. They need to be with mom, not with others, no matter how awesome the program is. Boys typically develop later than girls. Most boys are not "developmentally ready" for kindergarten at age five.


Preschool is unnecessary for healthy child development. Early academics is not how to give children the EDGE.

Read to them. Take walks with them. Invite them to help you in the kitchen, sort and fold laundry, and clean together.

Avoid the need to "entertain."
Rather, think of giving them the EDGE:

Edify your child through prayer, faith based songs, Bible verse memorization, and Bible stories.

Develop their brain, with lots of running, climbing, crawling, jumping, spinning, sliding, brachiating, and balancing to integrate the brain.
Grow your child, through healthy diet, exercise, sunshine, and rest.
Engage your child through shared stories, exploring the world around your child, and experimenting on new knowledge.

If you are planning to homeschool they won't need kindergarten either. It is not required in 36 out of 50 states. Kindergarten was meant as a transition into public school and if they are homeschooled they do not need a preschool class, nor do they need a kindergarten curriculum.

This EDGE is what advantaged children used to get before people started doing academic preschools or for those who homeschool, who do school at home, younger and younger. Giving your children this EDGE will give your children a social and intellectual advantage, their peers will be missing out.


While your children's peers are not building the brain and core body balance, because they are in developmentally inappropriate activities in school, your children will be developing attention span, focus, executive function and frontal lobe growth. So, give your child the EDGE, you will be glad you did!

Less is More

by DonnaG Thursday, August 21, 2014

Less is more, especially when it comes to commitments to things outside of God, family, and home. When outside commitments rise, the time to: draw near to God, do laundry, make nutritious meals, read that book, sew that outfit, paint that painting, time with spouse, time with children, and for wholesome recreational activities can decrease dramatically. An over busy life turns desired projects, the resources, and tools to do them, into a burden. A cluttered life or an over scheduled life can become a weighty burden of distance from God, our source of strength, as well as, family, the not done projects, neglected learning, and the under developed talents. Then turns all of it into clutter and guilt. Read Full Post...
