Wholehearted Parenting – Let’s Play with Our Kids…Holiday Gift Ideas and Free Giveaways!

Well, the holiday season is upon us and I’m sure you’re busy with holiday preparations.  If you’re still on the hunt for that special gift for your child, you’ll want to stay with us throughout the show!  I’ll be talking to the creative director of Great Pretenders children’s costumes, and the founder of Wonder Works Toy Store.  Not only will they be sharing their top holiday gift ideas for the season, but they’ll also be offering a free giveaway!  I will randomly choose a lucky parent for each giveaway, so stay tuned for details!
But first, let’s slow down a bit from the holiday hustle bustle and talk about the importance of spending time together as a family.  One of the best ways to do this is through play.  Children learn through play, and they love it when they can bring their Mom and Dad into their world of imagination.  I think one of the most important reasons to play with your kids is that the time you spend with your children now is not only priceless, but it’s relationship building.  Although they will appreciate their holiday gifts, your relationship with them is what they will really remember when they look back on their childhood.
Today I’ve invited my guest, Dr. Jean Feldman, also known as “Dr. Jean” to join my conversation.  Dr. Jean’s noteworthy educational career has spanned more than 40 years.  She has served as a classroom teacher, instructor of adults, author and consultant.  She is a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the National Kindergarten Alliance, and the International Reading Association.  Dr. Jean inspires teachers across the country with her engaging songs and creative activities that help make teaching and learning FUN!
Hope you’ll take a moment and join us!
P.S.  And stay tuned for a chance to win the free giveaways!!!
