I used your articles to help remind me of what children’s home life is like, such as “Morning rush: learning time.” I used ideas in this article to help me with a little boy given up by other teachers due to discipline problems. I used the writing ideas and many others in my classroom.

These articles are a wonderful concept. Teachers recognize parents’ support and the need to work with families. We need fresh approaches. The articles on conversation and reading are very important.

These ideas about better learning in the home are needed. Parents naturally want to do a good job teaching and preparing their children for school, but many are at a loss not knowing where to begin.

Loved your article, “If kids could place a want ad for a mom,” in “The Christian Science Monitor.” I wish it could be sent all over the world. Thought I might write Reader’s Digest to see if they would reprint it.
