My favorite early education resources and exploring homeschooling

I had a blast speaking to the parents at the Mommy and Me Babycakes meeting today.
Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital
I promised to share some of my favorite resources for parents of young children. In the early stages it is all about emotional bonding – giving children a safe, loving place to learn and people to learn from – and brain development – making the most out of the stages of learning. The brain is growing fast and the more we can get the hemispheres of the brain talking to each other, the easier learning will be for the child later on.
I recommend that parents examining their educational options and considering homeschooling start by formulating their educational philosophy. I would start by reading The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (can be purchased here):
