Are you interested in raising your children in an environment that builds self-esteem, independence, and a strong sense of self? The fact is you need to provide an environment that sets a child up for success. This requires thought and planning which is where I come in.
I created Ask Mary’s Advice in order to help those looking to better understand early childhood development. My experience in this field is diverse, including teaching Early Childhood Education at the college level for over 18 years, working with children for over 35 years and my most cherished accomplishment is the rearing of my three independent, self confident, delightful grown children. After having my children I decided to add to my Early Childhood Education Diploma by going back to school and getting a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Psychology.
My years of experience with people young and old has taught me that I have a lot to offer those who need help with the everyday dilemma’s of life with young children. I believe that in order for children to grow and develop a strong self-esteem they must be provided with a no fail environment. This is my mantra and what I would love to be able to do with this site is help you create an age appropriate environment that allows for children to thrive, learn and feel good about themselves everyday.
