💡Did you know...every word you say builds your child’s brain⁉️

Research shows that children do better in school when their parents talk and interact with them from birth. That’s why were launching the Any Time is 3Ts Time campaign. Make the most of the time you’re spending with your child by using the 3Ts.

🟢Tune In: Be in the moment.
🟡Talk More: Use a wide variety of words.
🟠Take Turns: Engage your child in conversation.

To learn more about the 3Ts, sign up at the3Ts.org. It’s free!

CASTING CALL! I'm casting for a commercial to be used on the web/social media and I'm looking for families with children ages 1-6. Families do not have to be limited to just parents and kids; can be aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews etc. We are trying to find existing structures of people that are already spending time together due to COVID-19. The shoot is in mid/late September and will take place in Northeast Ohio. Pay is $2000 and the time commitment is 2-5 hours. All different types of people are welcome and encouraged to submit! Link below to submit:
