During the past year, I’ve connected with many wonderful writers and authors in blog sphere who inspire and encourage me.
Today, I’d like to pay it forward and help Vivian Kirkfield, teacher and author, promote her new book.
“Show Me How!” will appeal to home school mom’s. And of course to mom’s with children attending main stream schools.
I’m also reblogging Vivian’s post. Take it away Vivian.
The school bells are already ringing, announcing the start of a new school year.
Here at Positive Parental Participation, we are joining the celebration.
We believe that building self-esteem is of critical importance. Do you?
Studies show that children with a positive self-image:
Are more likely to take on new challenges
Have greater school success
Make friends more easily
Do not become bullies or the victims of bullies
Many children are in school for eight hours a day. Little ones in daycare facilities while their parents are working may be there for even longer periods of time.
Isn’t it important for teachers and other child-care providers to have the best resources available to succeed in this important task?
