Just what are "Suggestion Circles" anyway?

"Suggestion Circles" are part of our "Parents Helping Parents" feature. Jean Illsley Clarke, our current Guest Columnist, has given us permission to use excerpts from her book entitled:

HELP! For Parents of Children from Birth to Five: Tried and True Solutions to Parents' Everyday Problems.

"Suggestion Circles" do not present theory, but rather practical solutions (previously given by parents in the U.S. and Canada), for handling typical parental concerns regarding children. The parents had participated in groups led by a facilitator trained in the techniques employed by "Self Esteem: A Family Affair" classes. The suggestions were not obtained by "brain storming" with parents, nor were they offered by a "professional". These suggestions are the best suggestions that worked for the persons who offered them in the "circle". Each suggestion is offered by an "authority" (e.g., parent, daycare provider, aunt, uncle, grandparent). Every answer is correct since it worked for the person who discovered it -- sometimes after many years of experience.

Concerning the suggestions:

We at "Educarer World of Infants" plan to weekly update our site with a new "Suggestion Circle" question. Each question is numbered in correlation to the numbered item in Jean Illsley Clarke's book, the title of which is given in white text above.
