Love Your Baby Activity Packet

Children need EVERY adult, that has an influence on their life,  to understand the basics of brain development and help them learn needed life skills. We owe every child the opportunity to develop in the most healthy ways possible.

This unique newsletter is designed to create and share a much broader awareness and understanding. It is still a minority of individuals that know the basics of how we can positively influence a maturing brain. 
All children deserve the opportunity to develop their brain in the healthiest way!the

Through continuing to work together and sharing we can finally make this critical information common knowledge!

Because you care, I invite you to join in, benefit from and
share in this needed effort. I hope you are as enthused as I am
to get started!

Thank you first of all for your interest in Creating Great Connections. It is extremely wonderful that you are a part of the connection.... because that is what this is all about. Many people I talk with, no matter which country they live in, are asking, "In what way can we better share and get this valuable information to more people?". It is my genuine hope that this new way of networking and sharing will greatly contribute to addressing this concern and desire to meet this need.
This is more than a newsletter. It is interactive. Creating Great Connections provides information and support entirely related to healthy brains and life skill development for ALL children. But in addition, it also is a way to better connect all of us that care so deeply about children and provides a way for us to help each other, (Our brains do love connecting!)

Whether you are working in a job that serves children directly or indirectly or you are a parent or grandparent, you will find information and questions on news related to the brain, books, resources, blogs, conferences, and also personal requests. This is designed to help you!

The main portion of the newsletter is focused on what I have titled, HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere). As you can see below there are 5 categories. These are areas where you can either ask a question about something you are looking for or respond to a question being asked.and offer your help.

This is something I am extremely excited to get started and it is my sincere  hope you will feel a real sense of connection as we build this together!

With heartfelt thanks and great dreams for all children,
