Why you need to teach your kids skills now

My wife is reading Barbarian Days, the memoirs of a now 60-year-old surfer. While reading it, she stopped dramatically and looked at me to say, “He says that if you really want to be able to surf completely naturally, you have to start by age 14.” She continued, “Wow, by age 14. Can you imagine that?” I have to admit that I wasn’t really ...read more

Your baby is listening and learning from the womb!

All parents want to help children develop to the best of their abilities, and it is no wonder that most parents are perplexed and confused when they think about their roles in children’s lives.

Review: Time Tracker Mini

I'm a pussy cat dad, a long way from being a Tiger Dad, but I have amped up my discipline on piano lessons, keeping my kids at the keyboard for up to an hour. We've been using Mark-my-time to keep the kids on track for their time commitment. Unfortunately, it is a pretty poor quality digital timepiece, poorly constructed and worn out quickly. So wh ...read more

Parents are often startled to find this process is more like an assembly line that can devolve into an exchange of "Everything's fine. Keep up the good work," which might tell you absolutely nothing.

The Piano Guy has free video lesson of Silent Night

I'm a late bloomer piano prodigy. I decided to learn piano at the same time as started to subject my then five year-old daughter to lessons. At nine, she already plays more easily than I do, but we have a great time playing the piano together, learning new music, and singing along. My direction to "go practice" sure has a lot more moral authority w ...read more

Talk To Children While Watching Television

A study published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine has found a link between parents who interact less with their children while watching television and delayed linguistic development in kids between 8 months and 16 months. 329 children between the ages of 2 months to 2 years were kept under observation by researchers at t ...read more

Best “priceless” fathers day gift

A dad on our forum related how he had made a video of his own son and baby to give to him for Father's Day. Isn't that about the best present you can get as a dad? These fatherhood years go by so quickly and all we all love to try to recapture the feelings we had through them. Videos made in iMovie or in Adobe's Video Editing suite for PC can be th ...read more
