Sometimes, the smallest feet can leave the biggest footprints on our hearts. Kids have an innate wisdom that reminds us to embrace curiosity, find joy in the simplest things, and cherish the magic of each moment. Let their boundless enthusiasm and unwavering belief in the extraordinary inspire us to see the world through fresh eyes and rediscover the wonder in everyday life. 💫👧👦

A veces, los pies más pequeños pueden dejar las huellas más grandes en nuestros corazones. Los niños tienen una sabiduría innata que nos recuerda abrazar la curiosidad, encontrar alegría en las cosas más simples y apreciar la magia de cada momento. Deje que su entusiasmo ilimitado y su creencia inquebrantable en lo extraordinario nos inspiren a ver el mundo a través de nuevos ojos y redescubrir la maravilla en la vida cotidiana. 💫👧👦

Check out these awesome tips from , a registered dietitian, on helping toddlers to eat their veggies!

"Were they like a garbage disposal as a baby and ate eeeverything, and then all of a sudden you found yourself with a toddler who eats like 1/10th of the things they used to? Veggies can be TOUGH. Kids are hardwired to enjoy sweet (like breastmilk) so don’t feel like it’s all your fault!"

Scroll through the pictures to see some great tips and follow her for more nutrition tips! Elko WIC helps with supplemental food, formula, and baby food, but did you know we also give families nutrition education to help children grow up strong and healthy?

Parents often seek soothing through information, but for kids, support and soothing often comes when an adult can join them in a space without expectations that they report, perform, or explain.

Parenting can be overwhelming and it isn't something you have to do alone. Research suggests that a short course of meetings between a parent and a therapist or parenting coach/educator, can soothe parents and by extension, reduce anxiety and anxious behaviors in children.

We offer free parenting education for anyone in Elko County, and we have two childcare reimbursement programs you may qualify for! One program is for grandparents age 55+ in raising their grandchildren and the other is for residents with moderate-to-low income. Call or come by to learn more! 775-753-7352, 331 7th St. in Elko

08/17/2023

There are many ways you can show your child how much they mean to you. When you affirm your child with meaningful, positive words you nurture in them a sense of self-worth and self-love.

Your positive words also say to your child that they are important and worthy of so much love. That loving themselves is just as important. When your child is able to love themselves just as they are, then they are free to become who they truly are.

Before your child can develop self love, they need to be loved unconditionally. They also need to see you loving yourself just as you are. You are your child's first teacher! Your child learns first from what you do and who you are as a person. This means that you first have to love and affirm yourself because you can't simply encourage self-love, you also have to be an example of self-love; you have to live it!

As parents, grandparents, caregivers, etc., we have to talk ourselves up, not down. We have to affirm ourselves. Keep trying each and every day to love yourself even a little bit more than the day before. When you’re positive and loving you become the model of positivity and love. It begins with us!

August 15th – August 21st is Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Week. Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander parents have higher breastfeeding initiation rates immediately after birth but those rates decline after six months to a year of life. According to CDC’s 2020 Report Card, formula was supplemented earlier by Asian parents compared that of Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander parents (Segura-Pérez et al., 2021). Common barriers to breastfeeding amongst the AANHPI population include stigma and lack of social support. Studies have shown that a combination of interventions addressing both the social and medical aspects of breastfeeding have more effective outcomes.

We can all help one another by listening with compassion, checking in, and being present. Our kids can do the same.

Teach your kids to:

✅ ask for help
✅ accept help
✅ offer help
✅ act with empathy and compassion

When we come from a place of caring, we all feel more connected and supported.

That’s called mutual empathy, and that is an important lesson to learn and pass on.

Let’s all start today.

It was a pleasure to be a part of the monologues this evening! With such a serious message, its a difficult job to bring it to an open forum and educate the community. I hope I was able to do that for you and advocate for what you do everyday!
