Olivehurst, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2010
Kate Cordell, a mother of two, has started a discussion group called MyPromise Kids, designed to make it easier for parents to spark creative conversations with kids. The Facebook group which was featured on Good Day Sacramento last week, sends members a daily message with an imaginative ‘Question of the Day’ to use with kids. Parents can use the questions to engage with their kids while driving in the car, waiting in line at the store, sitting down at dinner or anytime they want special family time. Through the group, parents can share posts of their child’s sweet and silly answers.
“I am thrilled that parents have found this free service to be so valuable. Children light up when you engage their imaginations. However, parents have busier schedules than ever, and it takes a lot of energy to think of new ways to start imaginative conversations every day. I am glad that I can help inspire families to connect daily in such a positive way,” says Kate Cordell.
MyPromise Kids was started by a mom who, while struggling to get her kindergartner to talk about her school day, discovered that the way to a child’s heart is through her imagination. In addition to starting ‘Question of the Day’, Kate Cordell writes articles for regional parenting magazines on creative ways to communicate with kids about specific topics and is designing a novel format of children’s book with special features that hope to engage parent and child in imaginative conversation while encouraging a love of reading.
Kate Cordell holds a master’s degree in public health and is a Research Scientist for the State of California.
