Picky eater? Use these tips to expose them to different foods!

Do you have a picky eater?   My friend’s son only had two food groups for years: McDonald’s and pizza. His parents were incredibly frustrated and tried so many tips and tactics to get him to branch out…and he eventually did but it took several years and this was after exhaustive testing to ensure he did not have sensory processing disorder or food allergies.    I was recently reading in The Natural Parent Magazine about the importance of “exposure” and how it may look a lot different than what we might think. Did you know that all of these count as EXPOSURE? ⁠ ⁠ How do you deal with picky eaters? Here are some insights: ⁠  Limit snacks and drinks. Most feeding clinics ask parents to record what their child has eaten and drunk for at le...

The Benefits of Theatre for Kids: Wolf Theatre Academy Returns

The benefits of participating in theatre-related activities for kids go far, far beyond what may be most apparent—that is, providing an avenue for your extroverted young person to get involved in “show business” by joining the cast of a play or musical and getting a chance to be seen by adoring audience members. In fact, while this may be an important driving factor in a child’s desire to take a theatre class or register for a camp, their participation directly results in positive developmental growth across myriad areas regardless of the age at which they begin their theatrical journey. Some of these benefits are profound, yet not always obvious, and include: Community building: Each theatre class or production involves the subtle, yet crucial establishment and sustenance of a specific “a...
