4 Links, a Freebie, and a Prize

I’ve got some fantastic resources for you today, Internets! Read on:

Emma from AccreditedCollegesOnline contacted me this week to share an article she’s proud of. How to Raise a Brilliant, Bilingual Baby: 100 Tips, Tools, & Tricks is exactly what it claims to be: a HUGE and comprehensive resource for parents wanting to raise a child in a bilingual environment. I read through the list and holy cow! That was a lot of work. Well done, Emma.

You may recall I’ve mentioned the Fresh Air Fund here a few times. Sara reports that they had massive success at the NYC Half-Marathon. You can see photos of the day over at their Facebook fan page.

Danielle from Project Working Mom posted 6 Myths of the Working Parent . I’ve been blessed to stay home with the kids since the start, so much of this was new to me. It’s definitely an encouraging article.

Maura wrote to let me know that the National Safety Council’s Alive at 25 program is being offered for free by Midas. Normally costing $25, this interactive program helps parents train teens to be safe, responsible, and defensive drivers. This is a while supplies last item, so get yours today.

The Freebie: So sorry, that offer has expired.

Finally. Ever heard of the 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party? It’s a great way to find new blogs and win prizes! And guess what?? I’m offering a prize this year (I’m number 11 on the list). Woohoo! It starts this Friday, April 9. All the cool kids are going. You’ll be there, right?

    I really applaud those parents who encourage bilingual learning. I think you’re right – it must be loads for work but how beneficial if you can follow through with it.

      Tina, I think it must be work. My brother and his wife are bringing up children in two languages, although I noticed they’ve been focusing mostly on English lately. I wonder if it was just too difficult since they don’t have a community that offers support? My sister-in-law is from another country and they only get to visit her family every year or so.
