Join us on October 14 (2pm EST), when our guest, Dr. Damon Jones, discusses the findings of a recently published study in the American Journal of Public Health. This study funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation suggests that kindergarten students who are more inclined to exhibit “social competence” traits—such sharing, cooperating, or helping other kids—may be more likely to attain higher education and well-paying jobs.
Damon Jones, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Associate at Penn State’s Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, serving as a program evaluator and methodologist for several family and youth behavioral interventions and prevention programs. A focus of his research has been toward understanding the public costs associated with behavior disorders, which has included authoring several publications on the potential economic value of effective efforts to improve developmental outcomes in children and youth. He has several years of experience with cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit assessments as well as overseeing several project resource evaluations. His work has also included investigations of health and mental health service needs for at risk populations, involving design of data collection streams for collecting detailed health services use information. He received his Ph.D. in Quantitative Methods from Vanderbilt University in 2002.
This promises to be an amazing discussion. Listen in and participate! October 14 - 2:00pm EST.
Kindergartners are receiving more and more homework from school and are expected to know a certain set of sight words upon entering Kindergarten. The academic requirements for reading preparation now begin in Kindergarten. No longer do kindergartners play most of the day, instead they are required to do school work. This new academic outlook is surprising to some parents. Are we helping our children to develop academically or our we creating a wider gap in academic success? Does learning to read in Kindergarten help prepare you for 1st and 2nd grade literacy or are we creating a pool of 2nd and 3rd graders who don't meet the new standards? Our guest speaker the Director of Georgia Education Consulting will be here today to discuss that with you. Stay tuned
We will be discussing the pros and cons of kindergarten redshirting, a trend in which parents choose to not enroll their children in kindergarten until they have turned six years old. We'll also explore the meaning of school readiness in an interview with preschool teacher Joan Rehak.

Just so my listeners are aware, I have a physical disability called Friedreich's ataxia which is a form muscular dystrophy and it affects my speech. But I try my best to speak as clearly as I can! I do hope that any child with or without a disability can look up to me and realize that as long as you do your best, you can do whatever you want in life too.

Today we are thinking of our nation’s Thanksgiving holiday and Debi Dutton and Elissa Sungar, the mother-daughter co-founders of If Not You Who.org, give some tips on how to teach a child to be thankful. Children that are thankful have more positive attitudes toward school and family. They also feel more of a connection with friends, family and school. Being grateful makes people happier, improves health and reduces stress. How wonderful that Productive Play shares ways to instill the character trait of thankfulness into our little one’s lives.

Bishop James was born in Louisville, Kentucky and was raised Roman Catholic. He attended a Roman Catholic grade school and it was during the time while he was attending kindergarten that he knew that he had a calling to serve as a priest. His mother had asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and +James pointed at the priest and said, “I want to do what he does.”
From then on, his calling to serve as a priest grew stronger as the years progressed until he decided to join the seminary and begin his formation.
Bishop James attended St. Meinrad College but because of financial problems, the school had to close its doors. Therefore, he transferred to Loyola University in Chicago and graduated.
He continued his priestly studies by joining Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois. It was during this time that James began working closely with his spiritual director and through prayer, he decided that God was calling him to serve as a priest within the Independent Catholic Church.
Because of his theological differences with the Roman Catholic Church, James felt that it was better to be ordained within the Independent Catholic Church. This decision was not an easy one and it was a decision that he made out of respect for the Roman Catholic Church and his calling.
He is currently the Archbishop for the United States Old Catholic Church and offers Spiritual and Life help for those who seek his assistance.
