Solving problems is what moms do, and that is where our Bright Littles story begins. As a mom of a 6-year-old living in a pandemic, while climate disaster, social, racial, and LGBTQIA+ injustices surround us, I needed tools to meet my daughter where she was and prepare her for, not protect her from, the real world in which we live.
When I could not find the tools I needed to have meaningful, age-appropriate conversations around diversity, self, nature, health, and safety, I created them for our family. This started out as handwritten questions on pieces of paper in a bowl at dinner time before I had my entrepreneurial moment of if fundamental change is going to happen in our society, these mindful conversations need to be had at all dinner tables, classrooms, and beyond. And so, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work!
