There are 5.6 billion mobile phone users worldwide. Parents who are distracted by their devices are missing golden opportunities to tap into kids’ curiosity and their need for attention.

“I watched a little boy talk to his mom for 45 minutes in a restaurant and NEVER ONCE did she look up from her cell phone. My mission is to speak out on why PARENTS are their kids’ first and most important teachers…not devices.”
~ Dr. Connie Hebert

Guiding Parents How to Help Kids Think
By Dr. Connie Hebert

pdf_image2Parents ARE Teachers
By Dr. Connie Hebert
All parents are teachers. In fact, most people don’t realize that WE are a child’s most important teachers in life because we lay the foundation for a lifetime of growth, experience, and discovery. Kids who are given daily opportunities to experience language, to build vocabulary, and to actively engage with others acquire a solid ‘bank’ of prior knowledge. This prior knowledge is similar to what we know as ‘software’ in a computer. The more prior knowledge a child has, the greater the ability to bring meaning to the written word.

“When Dr. Connie Hebert appeared on my show American Hope talk Radio, she provided a captivating interview dealing with how to raise smart, appreciative children. As a parent, grandparent and great grandparent I can say her advice was both innovative and very helpful to our audience. I look forward to having Dr. Hebert on a follow-up show to answer specific question asked by parents who want to do their best raising smart appreciate children. I personally believe following Connie’s advice can help restore some of the moral fabric our nation seems to have lost by abandoning the responsibility of child rearing.”
