  • Help your children learn by role modelling and practicing

    You are your child’s first and most important teacher and one of their favorite people! As their first and most important teacher, your children are always watching you and absorbing all that you do. Which is why we are going to explore role-modelling and practicing, and how it helps your child learn new skills. Role modelling is exactly what it sounds like: demonstrating or showing your child what you need them to do, as you tell them. This might look like showing them what you mean by doing it alongside them, instead of telling them “clean up”. Help them put the toys in the basket so they understand the connection between the words “clean up” and putting toys in a basket. Learning a new skill takes a lot of practice no matter the age of the individual learning the skill! Giving your child lots of time and opportunity to practice a new skill is going to help those connections in the brain get stronger. This might look like letting your child try to put on their shoes on their own. Try breaking tasks of a new skill down into small and achievable steps for your child (In this example, have your child put the shoe down, then undo the Velcro in the shoe, then put their foot in, then pull the tongue of the shoe out, then do the Velcro back up). Practice when learning a new skill is going to take a lot of patience and time. But remember, helping your child develop these skills now lays a strong foundation on which to build their brain. You (and your child!) have got this!

  • Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre hosting diaper drive

    Participants report it’s a struggle to pay for bills and groceries, including diapers At Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre, our daily engagement with families allows us to understand their overall experiences, and we endeavour to be responsive to emerging needs. In recent weeks families have reported that the ever-increasing cost of living leaves them having to make tough decisions with their money, and often they don’t have enough to buy diapers. “Children need clean diapers to be healthy and develop to their fullest potential.” -Laurie Fagan, executive director at Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre Hear more from Laurie about the Diaper Drive on CBC's Radio Active here. In response to the need identified by our participants, we are asking Edmontonians to donate diapers. Our diaper drive “clean where it counts” is launching May 13 and ending May 31. People can donate diapers of all sizes at: Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre- 9516 -114 Avenue NW, Edmonton Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm Monetary donations can be made in-person at Norwood Centre, via e-transfer to payment@norwoodcentre.com or through our website here. In their first three months of life, babies need their diapers changed every 2-3 hours; in one day a baby will need approximately 12 diapers. If buying Kirkland Signature Diapers from Costco, in boxes of 192, families would need around two boxes per month, costing around $70 before tax. Imagine having to choose between $70 worth of food or diapers. Donate today so families don’t have to make that decision! Help us keep children clean where it counts. We will also be accepting: baby wipes baby formula Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre has been a community hub for children and families since 1963.
