Author Haven Caylor introduces us to Parenting Strategies on the Go:
"In 2008, life blessed my husband, Sean, and me with two healthy babies. We have an engaging and magnetic tale of parenting with unique learning strategies on the go that all parents can benefit from; however, this book is far more than that. As a professional educator, I saw how both everyday events like planning food and clothing and planning special trips like a visit to Disney World were gateways to introducing children to life skills and to nurturing cognitive development through learning strategies. With minimal planning time, any parent can use these strategies to inspire their children to learn, and the best part is that the planning and the execution of the plans are fun and exciting.
Each chapter is devoted to exposing children to diverse learning strategies: strategies to elicit proper behavior in public events, strategies for choosing souvenirs as teaching tools, and strategies to journal your children’s precious life events. The concluding chapter is a strategy unit guide for learning during a special trip—in this case, New York City—and we got to test that guide in June 2013."
For anybody who spends very much time with young children this is a valuable book to read. It is chock full of information about working with children in age-appropriate ways in many different situations. Haven home-schools their children and brings a wealth of information to this situation. I love that he is not just making statements, he cites studies and research about educating and engaging your children in their own education. He also brings many personal anecdotes about the experiences of raising the children and involving them in many different activities that provide stimulation and engagement of all their faculties. Education is fun for these children!
Of course, not everyone has a doctorate in Education. The principles that are brought forth can be used effectively by almost anyone with a little bit of thought and planning. One of the principles that Haven follows is involving the kids in decisions, giving them some ownership increases their involvement and motivation.
I give Parenting Strategies on the Go 4.6/5 stars!
