About Right from the Start
Right from the Start is an Early Education and Parenting Blog about Child Development and Self Development.
Right from the Start is for anyone with an interest in young children and/or family life. I aim to translate the principles of Early Education and Child Development and apply them to everyday life. Right from the Start also shares a personal journey to find and maintain the woman behind the mum.
