Parenting Points

This week's feature ... The benefits of nursery rhymes ... For hundreds of years, parents have entertained and soothed their young children with nursery rhymes. Whether parents make up their own or use old or new favourites, rhymes can serve many purposes. They can help build early literacy skills, strengthen the parent-child bond, and help your child move through life's transitions. And the songs and rhymes you share together will always remain with your child as precious memories.
