And the Winner Is....

Friday, May 25, 2012

      Do you teach early childhood students?  Are you a parent of a child ages 0-5?  Do you need a gift for a parent of  a young child or an expectant parent?  Then this is the contest for you.   
      I find myself in possession of two copies of Brain Rules for Baby:  How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child from 0-5.  Amazon describes the book, "Brain Rules for Baby bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and dad, unravels how a child’s brain develops – and what you can do to optimize it." One copy I plan to devour (and probably blog about).  The other I've decided to use as the prize for my very first contest.  Just in time for summer reading.
     To play--leave a comment in the post below with your advice for raising/teaching smart and happy children.
     I'll write all of the commenters names on a slip of paper and pull one from a hat.  There's probably a more high tech methodology, but I don't know it and this works--so don't laugh at me.
     If you win, I'll contact you for your mailing address.  If you lose, you'll still have the benefit of reading all the wise comments below.

The deadline to enter is midnight June 1.   Good luck.

Gosh - I am not sure I am any type of expert on this matter, and I am still trying to figure out the "raising a smart" child, but when Reagan looks at me with her big grin - I know that I have succeeded in the area of raising a happy child (...that least when she is not in time-out). The key to raising a happy child is something that all of us have, but it is so hard to give...TIME. That is all my children want. TIME with me, with family, with friends...just TIME. I try to remember this - always! - Meredith
