Resources & References

The general structure of our books and their practical sections come from our collective experiences as a mother, an educator, a coach, and a graduate student. We have found that using this structure and these strategies have been helpful for the children we interact with. As fellow friends, caregivers, and educators, we hope aspects of our models will be helpful for you and yours. Although what we give to you in this book comes from our own personal experiences, we have come to know that scholarly research shares many commonalities. Below are resources and references to assist you in your child-rearing journey! We will be updating this page periodically, so be sure to return as we come across new information.
