My summer range station

Have you noticed that living in Quebec makes it more difficult for our children to develop independence? Why is this? Because each season has its own set of little instructions that children have to learn from year to year. Some examples? In winter, there are mittens and boot felts to...

Éco-curieux, éco-soucieux, mais pas éco-anxieux…

J’ai déjà été plus à cheval sur mes convictions environnementales. L’arrivée de mes enfants a relativisé plusieurs choses, j’ai appris à mettre de l’eau (parfois plus, parfois moins!) dans mon vin! On choisit ses batailles comme on dit! Le fait est que c’est toujours resté bien présent dans mon quotidien,...

Our children and nature

  Almost every weekend, during school holidays or spring break, we go out with the family to the forest. Since I was a little girl, I've always spent a lot of time in the woods! Normal, my father, now retired, was a forest entrepreneur. He prospected land, cut wood and...

There is a party? I get involved in the preparations!

Receive or be received? Ola! The big question! I don't know about you, but for me (with my four minis under the age of 6!), It's much easier to get people home than going out with the tribe! Children are in their business, it is also easier to follow the...

The time of history, with prof glasses!

The act of reading involves much more than identifying letters, sounds or words. In teaching, we learn that reading consists of four important dimensions. Here are: Comprehension The Interpretation The reaction The assessment While much emphasis is placed on the comprehension aspect, it is important to look at the whole...

Read through the seasons

Do you feel it? That's it. There he is. It's spring. Far be it from me to complain, but I found the winter quite long and I'm sure I'm not the only one. My children, in any case, even if they love snow, have been showing me regularly for a...

When routine gives way to family rhythm

Life goes fast. Modern family life is often perceived and experienced as a mad, unrestrained and chaotic race, where our youngest child goes crisis after crisis and where our oldest child does not even respond to our thousandth repetition to brush his teeth. We're going to be late, go hop,...

Mom, I've lost my mittens again!

January is barely started that Laurier has already lost 2 mittens (of the same hand), two faux-collars and the beautiful little reusable juice box that I had bought him for ecological and economic reasons. Each time, I ask him to take a look at the lost objects of the school....

The tablet, the pedagogical side of the medal

The famous tablet! The debate about its use is already well underway and fuelled as much for its advantages as for its dark side! My goal in writing this article is not to take a stand or to raise a debate. I believe that every parent should make a head...

The transition from the screen to outdoor games

The transition from the screen to outdoor games For several years, we have been talking openly about the benefits of physical activity and outdoor play. In our schools, additional hours have been added to the calendar to allow children to move and experience certain motor activities. In our "flexible" classes,...

10 principles to become a pro of the discipline

To be "obeyed" by our children is the story of our life, the parents! Sometimes fatigue, impatience, discouragement and irritability take over and the task becomes very heavy. Education and its principles seem to change every 10-15 years, like fashion! Before discipline was more focused on obedience itself. Today we...

Thirst for reading

Reading, we can never say it enough, makes it possible to advance the skills of children by leaps and bounds! And not only in French. The simple fact of letting your baby hold a book, even upside down, and leafing through it a little awkwardly will eventually allow him to...

A smooth start to the new year!

Imagine for a second that tomorrow you start a new job. This involves a new boss, new colleagues, new expectations, several new functions and a new environment. If I told you that from tomorrow, you also have to get back to physical training, three times a week. To complete it...

Mom, dad, reassure me!

We define safety by the feeling of being "safe" and satisfaction to maintain a " confident and calm ". A simple definition that leaves us with an interpretation in the broad sense and little concrete. The concept of security can include several factors of a physical, psychological, financial, social and...

In the summer, I learn, but...different!

Summer is coming and for many families, the months of July and August represent the relaxation of the school routine and a little more time to have fun. Although the summer season is a holiday, as parents, we love that our minis continue to learn, develop and flourish throughout the...

To save the free game and the time of childhood!

It's crazy how busy our weeks are! Work, washing, housekeeping, groceries, homework, social life, 15 minutes of running three times a week, bathing, reading daily stories, preparing meals (balanced of course!), maintaining the land, seasonal rotation of clothing, sports items, visit of grandparents, lark. When my in-laws offered to enrol...
