Monkey Preschool Lunchbox

I used to be a firm believer that technology did not have a high priority in my children's life.  But, then I realized that technology does not simply belong in the mindless entertainment category, used only to keep children busy.  No, children can learn from technology - starting at a young age.

THUP Games' Monkey Preschool Lunchbox, an app I found for my Android phone, has provided countless learning experiences for my children.  Not only are they learning colors, sizes, shapes, and more, but they're doing this through a piece of technology that will help them succeed in real life.  My children have learned how to use my smart phone through finger swipes, finding the correct "buttons" to touch in order to play this game.  This same technology is one that they will have to use in their education and, most likely, their future careers.  They are learning the fast pace at which technology changes each time they have to learn the minute changes between the different gadgets on which I have this app (a smart phone and a tablet).

I originally found Monkey Preschool Lunchbox for my daughter when she was almost three years old.  She still loves it at almost five!  She is able to play it while waiting for appointments, in restaurants, while I'm in meetings or on the phone.  But, she has also taught her younger brother to play this game.  At two years old, he wasn't able to do every exercise in the app (playing the matching game and putting together the puzzles were most difficult for him), but he has been able to identify colors and count the fruit, after which he proudly announces "I did it!"

Yes, I still realize that there needs to be a limit to the amount of technology in which our children partake in order to learn social skills, but I understand that you cannot take technology completely out of their lives if you want them to learn this important piece of today's life.  I also want to be sure that my child's technological adventures are healthy for their holistic development.  For this reason, I am so happy to have apps that I, as a parent, can get behind.  Thank you THUP Games for Monkey Preschool Lunchbox.

Leadership Mom: SWOT Analysis

In business, leaders often analyze our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats through a SWOT analysis.  So, if we are going to look at our role as moms as being the greatest leadership opportunity to us, let's start with analyzing ourselves and our kids.  Here's the SWOT I developed for my family:

As a doting mother, there are hundreds of strengths that I could put up here for my kids.  Their hugs, kisses, bedtime stories and prayers, the fact that they come to me when they're seeking healing from an injury (physical or emotional), the notes and drawings they make for me, their precious hearts when they try to help me or that they've learned how to use the Keurig to bring me coffee in the morning...I could go on and on.

Now, here's the part where we get honest with ourselves.  Yes, we love our kids and we love our family (or, hopefully, most of the time), but we are not perfect.  Nor should we be perfect.  As we analyze ourselves and our families, we hav…
