How Can I Get My Kids to Work? – MBFLP 284

It’s one of the most common questions we get – “How can I get my kids to work?” Surveys find that a large number of families don’t expect their kids to do chores – and many that do, have a running battle over getting them done cheerfully. This episode, we’re talking about a balanced, Biblical attitude toward our children’s work (as well as our own), and what we can do to encourage them in it!

Podcast #22

In this episode,  Florida Parent Educators Association (FPEA) Chairwoman, Suzanne Nunn looks at learning and growing during the early preschool years. Early childhood is full of opportunity for exploration and learning. Growing during the early years, is a building block of the foundation of education.

Children learn through play, exploration, story time, questioning and examining the world around them. Take time to enjoy the little things and watch your little ones grow through experimentation and curiosity. Early childhood learning is often fun and unexpected.
