We love receiving messages from parents who have been inspired by this blog and our parenting seminars to be their children’s first and best teacher. We are also thrilled to read about how the books from our shop have made their little ones fall in love with the written word.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know that what we are doing have positively affected you and your kids. Here are some of our favorite messages!
I just want to let you know that The Learning Basket has been a blessing to me. The articles you write and share help and inspire me to become a better parent. I look up to you as a role model and an expert. – Mommy Geraldine Oliveria
I would like to say that your homeschooling posts are such inspirations to me and I enjoy reading them very much. I’m a big reader myself and would like to pass on the love of books to my son. I’m excited about the idea of teaching him using literature and starting the reading habit as early as possible. – Mommy Geng Martinez
First, let me tell you how big an admirer I am of the work that you do. Through the learning basket, I have learned the value of “mommy networking” especially since I am a rookie mom and also new to being a full time mom and homemaker, and would need all the help I could get, in your own words “to be the best teacher to my child.” You’re an inspiration to so many moms. – Mommy Phoebe Zuniga-Garayblas
I’ve only attended one of your seminars and boy, I was blown away. This was the ‘Start Your Homeschool Preschool’ this March. I haven’t thanked you personally for opening my eyes for such a wonderful experience, and when I read and answered your worksheets, I nearly cried. For so many years that I have stayed and taught in schools, I never knew that it would occur to me that homeschooling would be the best choice for my child as I want to be her best teacher. – Teacher Mommy Lui Rola
I hope this email finds you well. I’m Sarah Bautista-Abano, one of the attendees of two of your Homeschooling seminars at the Medela House. I’m sending you a message first and foremost to thank you for touching the lives of moms like me. Your seminars have really opened my eyes and inspired me as a mom to the point that I left my rewarding corporate job in Nestle just last March 25 so I could be there for my 2yo toddler and 7mos old baby 24/7. Despite the challenges, I’ve never been so fulfilled! – Mommy Sarah Bautista-Abano
Thank you very much for a wonderful seminar. The Kinder parents all gave positive feedback and that they all learned so much from you. – Teacher Lee Anne of Integrated School for Young Children (ISYC)
Thanks for the seminar last Saturday. It was nurturing and inspiring!– Mommy Carissa Oquinena
Thank you, mommies, for sharing your time and experiences, and most of all, for making us feel at ease with the undertaking of teaching our preschoolers.– Mommy Emily Harmon
I really love your shop and your blog. It is through TLB that I learned about “twaddle,” so I now try to avoid such books whenever I go book shopping. – Mommy Daise Virtudazo
I just got the books I ordered from you and they look so brand new, even better looking than the books I buy from bookstores… I cannot believe how cheap they are and how quickly you delivered. You are the best! – Richie Ramos-Pilares
