Living in Indiana we wait patiently and sometimes impatiently for the opening of the Farmer's Market season. I am happy to report that my favorite market will open this Saturday! Can't wait for those small but oh so sweet Hoosier grown berries!

In 1907, Anna M Jarvis, to ease her grief, proposed and then organized an annual remembrance for her mother who had passed on into loving memory. It was a special memorial service that was to honor her mother with five hundred carnations-her mother's favorite flower-made into corsages.

Miss Jarvis worked, for the next seven years, to create a national holiday honoring mothers. On May 8, 1914 Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday in May "Mother's Day," urging an annual "public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country."

Very quickly the day became a commercial event. Anna Jarvis spent the rest of her life fighting the commercialism of this holiday that was so dear to her heart. She wrote countless letters, articles and pamphlets arguing that the holiday had been intended to inspire thoughtful, loving gestures-"through some distinct act of kindness, visit, letter, a gift or tribute to show remembrance of the mother to whom general affection is due."

Although Mother's day ended up disappointing Anna Jarvis, she did give us a beautiful day full of reflection. Keep Reading at:

The last month of school provides parents with an opportunity to encourage their children to become self-motivated. It is easy during first months of school to motivate children. Everything is new, new teacher, room, school supplies, a fresh start to be brilliant! Yet, all those reasons are external.

The end of a school year is a perfect time to teach our children to be intrinsically motivated; geography or environment change will not necessarily make them motivated over time. It is a gift to help children learn how to work consistently, and get pleasure from their work, to become life long learners.

Spring weather can be a challenge for parents; it can be sunny, it can rain, or snow, all in the same week. Active children love to run and play outdoors, but when the weather conditions change from day to day and they need to limit their outdoor activities children tend to get antsy.

Although, children do need to learn that it is not the weather that makes them moody, it is their attitude toward the weather. A special plan for when the weather is tempestuous will be a colossal advantage to both parents and children. Special treats and activities that are enjoyed only on stormy days pass the hours pleasantly while your children are cooped up indoors.

Create a stormy day box which is filled with treasures and inspirations to occupy children. Special paper, glitter, paint, crayons, Popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, craft books, all the elements you already have in your household.

hello Genny,
Hot Cross Buns...thanks for bringing back memories of my childhood. We had a third generation bakery in our community and one of their most sought after product were these delicious Hot Cross Buns each Spring leading up to Easter.

Most children learn the basic rules of their language at an early age through listening and practice. Learning to make sense of language requires time, development and lots of practice in everyday situations. A lot of verbal interaction not only helps children to communicate and be sociable, but understand their environment as it helps children with thinking and reading abilities.

A great majority of children develop language very efficiently, they out grow small problems like the inability to pronounce words as adults do. However, if your child appears not to hear what you say to her/him, if you find it difficult to understand your child, if she/he has noticeably different communicative abilities from other children of the same age, you may choose to speak to your family Doctor.

As parents, we are our children’s chief resources in language development. With our questions, as well as how we listen and respond to our children’s comments, we become our child’s main sustainers of language development and growth. With many oral interactions our children are encouraged to understand the written language, as they learn to comprehend.

Because oral language is so crucial to a child’s literacy development, which includes listening, speaking, reading and writing skills we need to cultivate it each day. Children need to learn how conversation works, how to take turns, look attentively, use facial expressions. They need interaction with other children their own age, and mixed-age groups. Family activities should nurture collaboration and discussion such as building with blocks together, games, book-sharing, gardening, long walks, cooking, dinner time, puzzles and even sewing. keep reading at:

Dating back to the fourteenth century Hot Cross Buns have been a part of Good Fridays. According to legend, on Good Friday the poor would visit abbey kitchens, where monks would give them a spicy currant bun with iced crosses. These Hot Crossed buns were considered blessed and believed to impart powerful protection.

By the eighteenth century, their popularity had grown and English street vendors would sell them by the bushel on Good Friday. Today hot cross buns are sold in bakeries throughout the season of Lent. This simple recipe can be whipped up for family and served with your favorite tea.

Livia McCoy has taught average or above average high school students with learning disabilities specific to language since 1984. Her new book, When Learning is Painful, How to Help Struggling Students, is a resource for parents and teachers. A well researched, easy to read practical guide based on how research works in the classroom and at home.

McCoy begins by basing her personal philosophy on Knowles, 1980 work:
• Adults need to be respected
• Adults make sense of their own experiences
• Adults want to feel autonomous and self-directed
• Adults want their learning to be relevant and practical
She uses these principals with the idea that learning should be joyful and meaningful.
As she lists ten ways to make learning more enjoyable McCoy delves into important considerations regarding how people learn.

Ms. McCoy has suggestions for learning styles not just in the classroom but homework, with practical advice like: teach your child that they are in charge of their technology, not their technology is in charge of them. Your child can turn off their phone…wow what a concept!
