Everyone Learns Differently

Every child learns differently.  They have strengths and weaknesses.  They are proud and they are discouraged.  They work independently and they need help.  These are the stages of learning for everyone, at every age and stage of their lives.

Parents are their children’s first teachers.  They show children how to persevere in all situations and circumstances.

I like the suggestions in this piece.  Especially this one:

“An entire family can benefit from adopting a growth mindset, and it can help everyone shift their thinking about the challenges one of them faces every day.”

Joyeux Parenting

I am the proud mother of two beautiful children and have lived in Boston for most of my life. I have over twenty years of experience as a Child Development Specialist working with new families, pediatricians at Mass General Hospital, and Early Intervention. I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise regarding the challenges related to breastfeeding, behavior management, picky eaters, discipline, sleep, and development. I love being a wife and mother and sharing my experiences-the good, the bad, and the ugly. I am constantly learning about new evidence based information as it relates to parenting. Most importantly, I think it is crucial to recognize that we all make mistakes and learn from them. I am a firm believer that humor is essential as you navigate the world. Parenting should be full of joy and that is why I started my business Joyeux Parenting. Thank you for allowing me to share my experiences with you.
