Facilitating communities of practice

I do talk about The Basics. I’m always telling (my sisters) I get text message reminders. It’s nice to get a reminder twice a week with a cool fact and a good activity or recommendation. It’s never, “Go out and buy this.” It’s always using staff you have around your house and nature stuff.

I don’t know what I would do without Basics Insights. It’s amazing to be reminded about simple things that your kids can really enjoy and learn from which is the most important thing.
