Parents as Teachers works for me. I used to work for a school district here in St. Louis and LOVED my job so much. My boss was totally awesome (I just channeled my 14 year old self) and the women that I worked with were great. I miss all of them everyday. I always wished that I lived in Webster so that I could have one of those great women as my P.E. (parent educator). That was until I met my current P.E. I love her. She and I get along so well and I never feel stupid for asking a question. My kids adore her and they listen to her. I never feel bad if my house is a mess when she comes, I don’t have to get all dolled up because she makes us all so comfortable. (She’s also my scrapbooking buddy). But, she is a hard worker and all of her families love her. The reason that PAT works for me is that whenever I have a question or a problem I can call her and she gets back to me right away. I always feel like I have someone on my side and on my kids side. She was the one to help me figure out if I needed to call the doctor about J’s speech. I always, always call her before I call the doctor. If you don’t use Parents as Teachers and want to – it’s for kids ages newborn to 3 (even though L isn’t in the program anymore, she still includes her in J’s visits). If you have questions, feel free to contact me or check out their website http://www.parentsasteachers.org/site/pp.asp?c=ekIRLcMZJxE&b=272091. I hope if you are in the program you are just as lucky as I am to have a PE like mine.
