Greetings from the new Editor of the Early Childhood site at BellaOnline.com. I just began training for this site at the beginning of July and am beyond excited to be serving parents (and caregivers or educators) of children birth - 12 years. I also write the Breastfeeding Site here at BellaOnline (since October 2007), so feel free to visit me over at http://breastfeeding.bellaonline.com as well. You can learn more about me at http://www.bellaonline.com/about/earlychildhood -- and you can also drop me a line through the contact option at the bottom to say hello!
I must admit I am a little overwhelmed by the vast possibilities of what there is to write about in this topic! So I'd love to have your feedback -- as a current subscriber, what have been your favorite articles and discussion topics on the site so far, *and* what new topics or articles would be most useful to you? I want to know -- please take a moment to either reply to this message and say hi, or post to the topic I will be starting in the Early Childhood forum.
In the meantime -- to get started I have posted two articles sharing tips and insight from recent experiences with my 5 1/2 year old.
