I’m one half of Crash Landing.
There are six girls in my family, we have 23 children between us. The sisters catch up regularly to chat.
No one is an expert and each adds equal value to the conversation. I am the teacher sister and I add stuff about education.
I will talk to ANYONE who will listen about their children and learning.
It is reasonable to expect that all children are set up for success in their school learning journeys. This is best done when all stakeholders, yes parents too, have a good understanding of what is going on at school and why. In this way, it is not just our children that have something to learn. As a teacher and a mum of three, it is my responsibility to learn something new from children every day.
I reckon the chats the sisters have, make the parenting journey easier.
Maybe we should call this our online sisterhood...
I'm the other half of Crash Landing.
A couple of centuries ago I was a TV reporter and I still do some freelance journalism once in a while, but 75% of the time I'm a stay-at-home Mom.
When you become a parent, your job description expands like the Universe: you have your paid job (or not) and then you're suddenly promoted to House Manager, Head Chef, Events Organizer, Emergency Doctor, Siblings Liaison Officer, External School Affairs Mediator... I also consider myself a writer, a philosopher, a dreamer BUT mostly a question maker.
Why? Because I have three little children under the age of 7 and I think that parenting is the most amazing maze (mess) you can get yourself into. And that's why I ask questions all the time to my Other Half, Therese, who is further along in this parenting journey.
We start talking about children, parenting and teaching... we end up discussing peanut butter sandwiches, Socrates and Plato, an everything in between.
Would you like to join us?
