Eda J. Le Shan quotes1-4 Quotations of 4
Babies are necessary to grown-ups. A new baby is like the beginning of all things --wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. In a world that is cutting down its trees to build highways, losing its earth to concrete... babies are almost the only remaining link with nature, with the natural world of living things from which we spring.
~ Eda J. Le Shan
Playing in the dining room, at the kitchen table, or on the family room floor creates a whole different family dynamic than other activities. Conversations can start to happen -- you may learn things about your child academically or socially that you didn't know. That's a much better atmosphere than, 'Tell me about your day,' when you're doing something you and your child enjoy.
