nicole commented on Preparing Tomorrow's Parents

I love this idea! As a parent to young children (6,4 and 1) and a former foster parent to a now 24 year old who has her own 2 year old, I can attest that parenting is hard. I see the difference between the experiences and learning that our young children have versus a foster child who came to us without that.
But everyone wants to do well by their children, they just don’t often have the tools. This program would work well because it would be in collaboration with existing systems (the schools) and so be easily implemented and trusted by the students. In addition, you could engage technology (social media, or an App) to build a community and continue to offer advice / set developmental milestones that the children should be exposed to and reaching.
