In our new fundraiser, "Raising Children Who Likes To Learn", we talked about how hand in hand tools can build courageous, confident, and curious learners. These tools come into their own when you suddenly become responsible for parents and school!
Read on to discover how three hand in hand families have used the tools in the mix of learning in their own families over the past few months.
Katy Linsley is a Hand in Hand Instructor and lives with her two boys in Lancaster, England. As a child-friendly, playful childminder and former elementary school teacher, she was initially confident of offering her sons a daily mix of play and learning opportunities - until she realized that the stressful events that led to the lockdown left her without energy or creativity. "The best I could do some days was pull out a box of toys that they hadn't played with in a while," she says.

Elle Kwan is the hand in hand content creator, host of the Hand in Hand podcast for parents and mother of two who have been teaching distance learning in Hong Kong since February when schools were closed for quarantine.
