This weeks Carnival of Family Life is being hosted by www.beagooddad.com. First of all, for those that don't know, what exactly is a blog carnival? Basically it is a place where bloggers can get together who same a common interest. We, for example, joined the carnival of family life. Once a week articles relating to families and parenting are submitted and the person hosting the carnival will make a short commatary with a link to the article.
For our readers here at More4kids going to a blog carnival is a great way to get a lot of good information from a variety of people. In this weeks carnival, topics include everthing from Toddler stocking stuffer ideas to Crafting for the Anti-Crafter: A Toddler Matching Game
One article we found particulary interesting was Reward Charts for Deserving Children, by Hsien-Hsien Lei, PhD. It is definitely on our 'must read' list for this week.
Finally, here at More4kids we presented our own article Establishing Communication in the Younger Years which deals with communicating with very young children and the importance of non-verbal communication and cues in the early years when a child is first learning to talk and understand. At this age the child may find it difficult to grasp what we as parents are trying to say. For me, this was the most frustrating time with our first child and this gives some ideas to help us with our second child.
Enjoy the Carnival!
