Party Rule #1: Be Nice To Your Friends!

Like all of the most important things in life, I have learned social skills and emotional intelligence from our friends at Nick Jr.

Have you seen Ni Hao Kai-Lan? (You can watch clips here on the Nick Jr site.)

Oh. My. Seriously. Isn't that the cutest show you ever saw? It is the biggest thing since Dora and I think it's fabulous! It's like therapy for the 5 and under crowd...but you know, with cute little cartoons who have giant Anime-looking eyes. On Kai-Lan kids learn about understanding non-verbal emotional cues, dealing with emotions appropriately, empathy, and supporting their friends. Plus there are songs. Monkey loves it.

As if that wasn't enough, you can also get such informational social tips as Don't Bite Your Friends (brought to you by rockin' indie kid-show Yo Gabba Gabba).

So I guess what I'm saying is thanks to the miracle of Nick Jr. television I am now socially adept enough to hang out with people online. [Woo?]

This Ultimate Blog Party is just getting started! Stay awhile, hang out-I promise I don't bite (anymore).

Ha ha ha ha Suzie. I actually thought of you when I posted this, since you do so much with the preschool crowd and I'm sure you've been on the disciplinary side when kids forget how not to bite eachother :)

Thanks Damselfly! And no problem-your blog was a great read! Hope to see you around more.
