This last 8 weeks we attended a parent/child class sponsored through a local technical college. It was a wonderful experience. The class was for toddlers ages 12 months - 2years old. We met in a preschool classroom for 1.5 hours on Fridays for 8 weeks. We sang songs, played at centers, had a parent discussion time and had snack.
Shrade learned a lot about social interaction and also following directions. I learned a lot about parenting and I got some great ideas for songs and activities that I can do at home with my son. Every week the parents had a different topic like discipline, potty training, self-esteem and fun things to do with toddlers. If you can find a program like this in your area, I would highly recommend it. I attended a special Mom and Me tea and received a $50 gift certificate to register for this class.
