Mi Casa Es Tu Casa - Spanish And Music Classes In One


Psychological studies continue to uncover more and more benefits that music lessons as well as multilingualism provide to developing minds. Studies found that kids who take music lessons "have better cognitive skills and school grades and are more conscientious, open and ambitious." and learning a foreign language "develops enhanced executive control, or the ability to effectively manage what are called higher cognitive processes, such as problem-solving, memory, and thought". 

Austin's best-rated baby and toddler classes from Mi Casa Es Tu Casa® are one big treasure hidden in Austin for all the families who are interested in exposing their little ones to Spanish and music at the same time.

Look Before You Lock - Keeping Kids Safe in Hot Cars


Yay for warmer temperatures, but here's something to always keep in mind: even a cool spring or fall day isn’t safe for leaving a child inside a car. 

In 2016, Texas led the nation in the number of hot car infant deaths. 

This alarming trend has gone surprisingly unabated. Since 1990, over 600 children have died from overheating in a car. Yet it took Congress until June 2017 to introduce the Hot Cars Act that would require all cars to have back seat child detection technology. 

Until the bill is passed, the best we can do is to educate ourselves so our children don’t become one of the statistics. Here are some things to keep in mind as the temperature climbs toward the sweltering heat of summer.
