Mom’s Homeroom is a new site from Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats and MSN. The site is chock full of resources for parents to help us navigate and understand our children’s school system which make us better prepared to help our kids be successful in school.
The site features a panel of four Moms from diverse backgrounds: a teacher, a psychiatrist, a former marketing coordinator, and an obstetrician/gynecologist. The Moms participate in online discussions and post unscripted videos of their views on helping kids succeed academically.
Through videos, articles, tools, quizzes and message board Moms can connect and find tips and tools to help their kids succeed in school. My personal favorite on the site are the videos that address certain issues. Since Jake just started school, and I am not a natural born teacher, hearing and seeing the ways that I can get involved in helping him learn and get the most out of school is very helpful and inspiring for me. I especially liked the unscripted videos of the panel of four mom discuss tactics and tips. I felt like I was sitting right there with them drinking coffee getting advice from the trenches!
I like that the information provided seems to take into account that every child learns at a different pace, and instead of telling you “what” your kids should know for each stage, they focus more on “how” to teach them the skills they need. As the site grows, however, I’d love to see resources for kids with learning disabilities and tips and advice for dealing with very advanced kids as well.
If you are looking for place where you can connect with other moms, get advice, and share your own tips regarding the way kids learn and how to make sure they get the most out of school, I recommend checking out the resources available at Mom’s Homeroom. The Frosted Mini-Wheat guy will make you smile too.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
