Education literally starts at home; parents and carers are the first educators. More research is affirming the importance of what a child experiences from birth to 5 years on the quality of life of the adult person in relation to physical and psychological health. The stress coping mechanisms that are taught in early life will be taken with the child into their adult years, as well as the coping mechanisms, eating habits and personality traits.
It can be hard to determine what to teach your children directly (and when) and what to leave to formal education. In this category we will review and focus on topics that impact on children’s safety, health and development.
We will focus on the following areas:
- Sex Education
- Outdoor Activities (swimming, bike riding, etc)
- Building Imagination
