This week’s Friday Question comes from World Moms Blog writer, The Alchemist. She asked our writers,
“What recent journey have you helped your child(ren) take?”
Check out what some of our World Moms had to say…
Maggie Ellison of South Carolina, USA writes:
“I taught my son to read before he went into kindergarten because he wanted to know how to do it. I just followed his lead and guided him to the next level. When he started kindergarten last year, he was on a 1st grade and 3 month level. They had a 100 book challenge at school, so every school night we read at least 2 books. By the end of the year, he wanted to reach his goal of 300 books. He read over the 300 mark and was so proud of himself. We celebrated with him!! What a huge accomplishment!!” (more…)
Not all, but a great number of countries celebrate Father’s Day on the third Sunday in June. In honor of Father’s Day, we asked our World Moms…
“What is your favorite memory of your father?”

Amy Hillis of Ohio, USA writes:
“My dad used to restore old gumball machines and he would let me sit at his work bench and help. He would give me little jobs and let me use his tools and paints to make my own ‘creations’.
I realize now that he helped encourage my creativity and provided an escape for me when things with my mother were rough.
My dad is still around, but lives 400 miles away- I still miss doing ‘projects’ with him.”
