Each and every one of us are learning. It has been said that children can learn at triple the speed as adults. For example, think of a five year old child. Just four years earlier they were learning to walk and feed themselves with a spoon. Now they are learning to make their beds, read, tie shoes and play sports! It is this incredible phenomenon that I want to utilize to my advantage for my own children’s’ sake and why this year we could all use some extra assistance! That is why I have collaborated with Parentingwithkris.com to give you this particular article. I hope it encourages each and everyone of us who are on a journey of learning and teaching. – Kate Dahlin
