Our Children are Listening is a website for parents of young children, professionals in early childhood classrooms, and college faculty working with parents or early childhood professionals. This website offers blogs and stories with research-based recommendations for adults who recognize that children are sponges, absorbing countless social messages everyday, trying to make sense of them based on their past experiences with people, media, and the environment. You are not alone in your efforts to raise compassionate children in a society that lacks compassion. Welcome. Please contact me with questions, comments, and ideas, or to request further information.
