I, Barbara Pappas, am your host of the Sonoma Parenting 101 podcasts.
I started Sonoma Parenting 101 due to an overwhelming demand and parent’s desire to be informed and directed in their children’s road to success. I think of myself as an advocate for children and am passionate about the intent to reach for ones potential. These early years are the foundation for a life time to follow and the efforts and investments made for this young generation are not only rewarding, but crucial for the health and evolution of us humans and our life as a community.
Once in a while parents look for an outside opinion on their child’s behavior. They might be concerned about repetitive movement patterns, lack of eye contact, delay in speech, sensitivity to touch, or any other observations that they or close friends and relatives have brought to their attention. To assist with any processing disorder time is of the essence. It is much better to be one step ahead and get the green light than having to back paddle.

Early Childhood Education, ECE, is divided into the following groups:
- Infant, 0 – 12 months
- Toddler, 12 – 30ish months
- Preschool, 3 and 4 years of age
- Kindergarten, 5 years old
- Transition into 1st Grade, 6 years
It is important to recognize that the age of a child is only one of several components for assessing development and maturity.
Human beings of any age need regular quality time alone and with significant others.
