Here’s how parents can make mornings with their kids less chaotic and more organized and relaxed.
Here at Mountain Kids, we believe every child deserves a chance in the spotlight. That’s why we’ve created our monthly All-Star series to showcase outstanding athletes and artists when we notice them shine.
If you have young athletes, you’ve probably wondered at least once if you’re encouraging them in an appropriate way — are you providing the right amount of positive reinforcement or are you being too assertive?
Being a parent comes with so many rewards, but it goes without saying that it’s a ton of work. Between maintaining your home, going to work, and keeping up with everyone’s schedules, parenting is one of the hardest jobs — especially with a toddler at home.
Ever wonder what your toddler is really up to during a gymnastics class or other organized group activity?
This year, spring has been an early bloomer, but also a tease. 80 degrees one weekend, snowstorm the next. But when summer finally rolls around, we can finally hang up the skis and snow jackets — every day is an outside play day.
Children are influenced by their surroundings. It’s important to start young when teaching them habits, especially considering that children develop habits by age nine. Both bad and healthy habits can be hard to break.
If you have a toddler, you’re treated to daily workouts: running after them, squatting to lift them up, bending back over to put them down, using your back muscles to support them when they’re doing their own version of walking.
Coaches are more than just sports-focused supervisors who see your child a few hours every week. They play a crucial role in children’s lives — as role models, as teachers and as mentors.
As parents on a mission to protect children from disappointments, we have erased nearly every uncomfortable obstacle, depriving children of one of the most valuable lessons: Failure is part of success.
