SORT BY Relevancy
Suspensions from school are usually the last resort, the result of disruptive, destructive behavior that prompts school officials to send a child home and request that the child stay there until parents can come up to school for a conference. But generally, this type of punishment is reserved for older children who have the ability to think rationally. How does one handle a preschooler? Statistics show that more and more preschoolers are being kicked out of school by frustrated teachers. Is this the appropriate way to handle a 4 year old who misbehaves? Or are teachers lacking in patience and skills? Or are today's children suffering from serious neurological problems that transcend mere "disobedience?" This week we'll discuss the behavior of young children, and what measures can be taken to prevent the "school to prison" pipeline that seems to be starting as early as preschool.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the prevalence of obesity for children ages 2-5 has almost doubled since the early 1970's! The National Association for Sports and Physical Education recommends that preschoolers accumulate at least 60 minutes of structured and another 60 minutes of unstructured physical activity a day, but while kids under 6 love to move - we need to encourage fitness in a fun manner. On today's show, Debi and Elissa share some balloon activities and other information to help preschoolers develop a joy for movement - it offers so many life-long benefits!

Join author, blogger, writer and internet radio host Dariaanne for Writestream Tuesday on January 20 at 1 p.m. Eastern when she welcomes author Chris Bostic to the show:
Chris Bostic is an author of young adult adventure novels. He was born in the suburbs of Chicago. While not completely set against the urban lifestyle, the lure of the country was much stronger. After college in central and southern Illinois, he ended up in the suburbs of St. Louis, where he gets away to rural Missouri as often as he can. An avid outdoorsman, Chris uses his experiences to write all-too-realistic, gripping action/adventure, wilderness survival books that appeal to young and old alike.
Chris shares his outdoors passion with his wife, three wonderful children, and a Boy Scout troop. Chris' teenage son is an Eagle Scout. His red-headed middle child has a passion for reading (and is a budding young author). His youngest child is a very smart preschooler who's growing up too fast while keeping him young at heart.
Somehow, between a full time job and a busy family, Chris finds time to write.
During the live show, host and guest welcome your questions at (347) 945-7246, and your participation in the live chat. Tune in to Writestream Tuesday with author Chris Bostic on January 20 at 1 p.m. Eastern!
Today might be a crazy day. I have a preschooler and a kindergartner coming over and who knows what kind of shenanigans we'll get into, but I feel a sense of calm in all the potential craziness, and it's a wonderful feeling at this time of year. Just a short bit of perspective on this busy day before I dive into it full force.
Most children believe Santa lives at the North Pole. But, one strange occurrence convinces a preschooler that Santa may live two doors down.
A Christmas gift by a grandmother will forever haunt her granddaughter. Was the frightening sight a ghost or grandmother’s doll come to life?

Taking care of the family is never ending work. It is an exhausting 24/7 job. Sadly, it is often a thankless job. So the sooner we can get some help, the better.
Listen in as we share some tips for raising little helpers. Kids can actually start learning the good habit of helping at quite a young age. Most importantly, it helps build their little heart for serving others.
Please take a minute to leave us a rating and review. It helps us grow and helps us know how to help more mothers out there. Not to mention, the good reviews are really motivating :)
