Change is as good as a holiday!

Firstly, we would like to thank each and every parent for their loyalty to this blog – the response we have received since it’s inception in August last year has been phenomenal.

We have however come to understand from parents that we are perhaps going a bit OTT (Over The Top) with the amount of information we’re sharing, and many parents just cannot keep up. Now, we’d hate for any of our articles to be overlooked and not practically applied because of time restraints, so we’ve made the decision to go from 2 articles per week to 2 articles per month.

Being parents ourselves, we appreciate that the theory is sometimes overwhelming, and parents occassionaly just need something really practical, inspiring or downright funny to brighten their day. So, we’ll be focussing on bringing you many more really interesting (and very short) quotes, links, studies and tips on how to best utilize your Practica Programme at home.

We hope you enjoy the new blog schedule and find it less time consuming to follow and apply.

So, without further ado, here is our first quote, which we absolutely love!

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.” – Pablo Picasso
