|A parent and child play together in Hawkins|
Today at a meeting for a local group trying to get a Talking Is Teaching effort off the ground in Eau Claire and Chippewa counties, I learned about the Vroom App, which is designed to help parents/caregivers build brain-boosting conversations into every day activities (eating breakfast, getting dressed, and more). There was a powerful SHORT video on the site (scroll to the bottom of the home page), emphasizing the importance of sharing with parents that they have the power and ability to make a difference in their children's brain development. Check it out to get inspired. And then let's talk about what you are doing to help parents and caregivers feel empowered to make a difference for their children.
