Tumblon: Track Your Child's Development


Did you know that there's a web 2.0 service that lets you track your child's developmental milestones? Web 2.0 means the most relevant information for your child. With Tumblon, you can create on online page for each child in your family to track their development, share pictures, and view resources. Tumblon offers not only an online format to track your child's development, but also a wealth of other resources aimed specifically at your child's current developmental stage: children's literature from Honey for a Child's Heart book list, open-ended toys (batteries not needed), Ellyn Satter's developmental feeding guides, and creative play suggestions. After exploring Tumblon I was very impressed with the quality of the resources and the usefulness of having them tied to each developmental stage. 

One of the perks of Tumblon is a customized 
weekly email summarizing your child's most important milestones, recommended resources and recent activity on your secure family blog. (There are NO advertisements - just simple, reliable, interactive content!)

This two-minute video shows how it works.

Tumblon is a 
"freemium" service, so you can try out the free service, upgrade to the paid level (or back down to free) at any time - and enjoy a 30 day trial of the premium service for free!

  8. Taking into account the fact that this blog post is dedicated to kids so I just would like to ask opinions of experienced parents what they think about such educational iPhone game as Kinder Hangman – http://sharkfuel.com/kinderhangman.html I am currently preparing my children for school. Is this game really so helpful for developing a vocabulary of kids? I am a mother myself, so just would like to know if this game can help me repare kids for school? Any ideas? Your opinion is highly appreciated. Thanks.

  9. The most critical stage in the life of each human being is the period up to age three. Keeping memorable moments with your baby is a lifetime token for them.

  10. Learning starts in infancy, long before formal education begins, and continues throughout life. Early learning begets later learning and early success breeds later success, just as early failure breeds later failure.

  11. In the later preschool years, social skills and early cognition are critical areas of development. Children lacking sufficient stimulation at home can benefit greatly from specialized programs in the early primary years, and poor children in many countries benefit from community-based programs that integrate food and health care in homes and community centers. Toddlers and older preschoolers thrive in early education programs when these are interactive and participatory, and develop skills for social engagement and cooperation.

  12. Each time you commit words to paper in your own inimitable style, you declare your character and personality traits, your talents and abilities, even your current mood.
