Our Favorite Quotes from Beth Rosenbleeth:
“I think it’s very important for them to see that you value play as a parent.”
“Really what you’re doing with these Breakfast Invitations is just kind of planting little seeds and revving their engines. A lot of times what they’ll do is take whatever they did for that set-up and runoff and use it in their own terms.”
“One thing that I think is very important is following your children’s needs.”
