By LaToya Dawkins


As human beings, there is an adrenaline power within us that is inexplicable. Ask the mother who lifted a car to save her trapped baby or the little girl who pushed her sister out of the way of a moving truck and lost one leg and broke a few ribs. Also, there is a daily power in us that allows us to make it through the day and function effectively even when we are mentally and physically exhausted. Then…

By LaToya Dawkins


In my class, we read a book called The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle that explains how a very hungry caterpillar ate so much food to prepare for his transformation into his cocoon and then into a beautiful butterfly. It is a fun story that gets my students into counting and enthused about all the different types of foods he ate. It also goes through the four phases of the butterfly; the egg, larvae,…

How To Help Your Preschooler Make Friends and Not Enemies

By LaToya Dawkins


I know a woman who battled with friendships her entire life but I remember the day that she realized the solution of her struggle, “In order to have a friend, you have to be a friend.” Friendships are solid relationships where those involved benefit from the constant exchange of communication, empathy, and love. In life, it is easy to gain a friend but twice as easy to lose a one. It is important that our…

Helping Your Child Communicate Better

By LaToya Dawkins


          Some of our preschoolers have the gift of talking, while others can go through an entire day without saying a word. Some learn how to talk before they learn how to walk and others after.
