When I gave birth to Henry, I admit that I had no idea on how to take care of a baby. I grew up without a mother so, I had no one to pattern my child-rearing skills with. Thus I turned to books and the internet to find out about what I needed to know on how to bring up a child. I had to google what type of activities and what toys to give him that are right for his development. Afterall, learning starts at home.
Mommy Mariel of The Learning Basket is a believer that the parents are their child's first and best teacher. Thus she has organized a seminar for new parents to bring out the best that they can be to become their child's first and best teacher and support their child's development.
Why do I think that this seminar is a great idea? Well, why not? Like I said, when I was a new mom I was alway on the internet researching. Sadly, this made me spend more time on the internet than actually focusing on my child which I now realized.
