Hi there I’m Barbara a mom to 6 children. For 15 years my husband and I were foster parents to almost 50 kids. Our Family 2 Yours was started to share with others what worked for us in raising our family.
Marge Kennedy said it well, ““In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, by the commitment of time, caring, and love you show to one another, and by the hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit.”
Our children are grown now as you can see in the picture above, and we still keep in touch with some of the foster kids. I still love to garden, blog, and spend time with my children and grandkids. We are so glad you came to visit us and we hope you will visit again soon.
Start a conversation with the young children in your life about the new coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, and the changes in routine we are all experiencing. Colorful illustrations featuring inclusive characters will lead your child through our new normal, making sensitive and complicated issues approachable for small children.
What is social distancing? What is quarantine? Why do some people wear masks? How does coronavirus spread? How can we protect our health? What can we do to make the best of this challenging situation? Written by an author with a background in early childhood education and psychology, Coronavirus: A Book For Kids gently and honestly answers the questions your child might have at an age appropriate level.
J.K.Rowling Is Releasing a NEW Standalone Fairytale, The Ickabog.J.K. Rowling. She will be publishing a chapter (or 2 or 3) every weekday, starting at 3.00pm today and ending on July 10th.
“It isn’t Harry Potter and it doesn’t include magic,” Rowling wrote. “This is an entirely different story.”
Rowling is also asking children to contribute artwork for the story. In her announcement post, she notes that it’s an official competition being run by Scholastic, and people entering could see their artwork in a printed version of the book, which is due out later this year.
