Raabe, Kim Privler It's Jammie Time! Life Skills- Other,
Literature- Other,
Music
At Mama Pajama’s Playhouse, our motto is “Rest Time Is The Best Time!” We believe that daily transitional time from the busyness of work and play is necessary for our bodies and minds to rest, recharge, and re-energize so that we can be our very best in the lives we lead. We use our live, interactive music and story shows, as well as our online concerts and story times to encourage and reinforce positive rest time perceptions to our audiences in a fun and entertaining way. This particular show is available in three formats - music only (entertainment-based), music only (entertainment + education), or as a story show, which uses both music and storytelling (entertainment = education). This show is primarily intended for children age 3-7, and of course their parents!

golub, jane Talking with Your Children About Sexuality Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Parenting
Today’s world has become a very sexually explicit one, yet one that so lacks age-appropriate or accurate information. The messages children are bombarded with are not always the messages parents are comfortable with. Parents want their children to have healthy and rewarding lives, yet many parents find it difficult to talk about sexual issues-especially with their own children. Parents are children's primary educators, and talking about sexuality offers them a unique and important opportunity to share not only accurate information but their own family values and beliefs as well. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, when parents talk with their children early, honestly and comfortably about a wide variety of sexuality topics, their children are less likely to engage in risky behaviors. These workshops are designed to help parents become more comfortable in talking about these sensitive issues with their children of all ages, and why such communication is so vital to keeping children safe and healthy.
