It's Hispanic Heritage Month and as a Colombian mom raising a multicultural daughter, it's important to me that she grows up playing with toys that reflect the diverse world that we live in and that celebrate her Latino roots.  I've created a list of toys that celebrate important Hispanic icons, diversity, and that would be a great addition during this month or as an early Christmas gift for your child!  Check it out...

Children's Books that Celebrate Hispanic Heritage By Country

Children's Books that Celebrate Hispanic Heritage By Country

by Janny Perez September 12, 2018

Hispanic Heritage Month is here and it's time to celebrate our Hispanic Heritage!  I couldn't find a list of children's books that were specific to Hispanic and Latin countries so I decided to create one. There are so many countries and each one celebrates it's culture, traditions, and even may speak Spanish differently, um plátano or banano?  Though we may be grouped by many as simply being Hispanic, Latino, or Mexican, the truth is that our countries are all different and these books celebrate our individual countries.  See what great children's book you can get to celebrate your Hispanic Heritage this month!

What You Need to Know to Potty Train - A Q & A

by Janny Perez June 27, 2018

My daughter is now 3.  Is she fully potty trained?  Well,  yes kind of sort of, um I guess the right answer is no.    When I hear parents say that they potty trained their child in 2 days, I am baffled.  When should you start potty training? What should you do? What are some tools you can use? When should you not potty train?  Because this is such a huge part  of toddlerhood, I wanted to ask my sister Dasy Perez (18 year experienced preschool teacher)  for her advice on the matter.

How to prepare your toddler for a new sibling. - Un nuevo hermanito o hermanita.

I have one 3 year old daughter named Victoria (in my belly below). I would love to have another child, right about now but for health reasons, we have decided to only have one child.  Many of my friends are now having a second baby and I wanted to address some of their concerns.

Like them, many parents have a second child when their firstborn is 2-4 years old so there isn’t a huge difference in age when the children grow up.  I asked my sister, an 18 year experienced preschool teacher, to share her advice and her experiences with you in order to help you when you're ready to have bebé #2.  Check out this month’s Dasy’s Corner.
