Featured Response😄 

“It's never too late to start teaching your children. When I was raising my daughter. I would tell friends and family, if they wanted to give her a gift to please make it something that she can learn from. Because stuffed animals, toys that break, and clothing I feel was a waist of their money. My daughter now loves to read and is extremely smart with a Colledge degree in psychology. She loves to know things and learn about everything. Not saying that she didn't have the other things but really... how many stuffed animals does one child need?”

- Community Mom

I love how you focused on educational gifts for your daughter—no wonder she turned out so smart and curious! I'll definitely look into adding more recommendations like that. Thanks for sharing! - Danielle 😊
