Teaching Tots in a Large Family

Today I have a friend of mine, Maureen, sharing about a common question regarding teaching tots…


Maureen is a proud mom of 7 children ages 14 yrs. down to 3 months. She really can’t remember a time when she didn’t have a toddler or preschooler around. One of her frequently asked questions is how to teach toddlers or keep them occupied while working with other children in the family.

Obviously I couldn’t answer this question, so I knew who to turn to!  Thankfully Maureen wrote up a post for us all, sharing how she does it!

Visit her blog to read her strategies for teaching toddlers in a large family.
