You’re not seeing double. Two posts today. Two!
You know me. I’m always running my mouth (err… keyboard) about something. But I really only do so when I have something good to share with you: something I know you can use to better your homeschool, make reading fun, or find good books for your littles.
But I also sometimes give some good parenting tips, things you can use in general to help your littles grow.
January is ending, and we have a whole wonderful year ahead of us to get more out of me, but right now let’s look back at the 5 most popular parenting tip posts of 2016. Because there might just be a nugget in there you can use.
Top 5 Parenting Tips of 2016
This one is so popular! It makes me chuckle, because I wrote this post on a day of Pure Frustration. It rained here for a solid month, with only a few couple-hours-long breaks and I woke up to the patter one. more. morning. and I thought, “I will find a way to get out of this house today, even if it means boating across the front yard.” Apparently you’ve been there, because this was hands-down my most popular non-book post.
Bet you didn’t think there wouldn’t be any book posts, did you? Of course there are book posts. Because whether you homeschool or not, as a parent you should know why it’s cool to read aloud, even to your teenagers. I’ve never had one complain, but I established the whole reading together thing when the boys were embryos. I’m betting you did, too. If not, you still have time to start, no matter how old your kids are!
You can have so much fun taking your littles outside to learn, and there are tons of things to do beyond nature study. Even if you don’t homeschool, there are some very cool outdoor fun ideas in this post.
O.M.G. Y’all. This is such a cool idea and was so much fun to put together. Don’t miss the free printables to use for your own book party.
Reading again. Because books, y’all. Books! This post explains just how it benefits your littles to be encouraged to read from the moment they can flip a page.
Seriously. Reading will help them succeed. I mean, look what it did for me. (No, that’s not hyperbole. Okay, yes, yes it is.)
Which was your favorite? I’d much rather have names and conversations than just stats.
