GomommyGo is partnering with
to help children's Character!

Character
Did you know that learning Art helps Math skills improve?
Schools can get Free materials that help kids learn Art and reinforce the CA Math standards, too!


100% of the donations we receive go to projects that help children through Art and Character building materials.
I know you care about kids or you wouldn't be visiting GOMOMMYGO. Visit the Non Profit that cares about Children's Character!

WE SUPPORT EDU DESIGNS

Give your kids character Building Books from

Reminder: Don't let the kids watch too much TV!

TV

People may be walking through the door via the TV, that you would never let in - in real life - influencing your kids in ways you wish they wouldn't! BUT YOU CAN CLOSE THE DOOR! Just shut off the TV or change the channel! You're in charge! Don't let the TV be the boss of you! SURE they're going to cry! But you'll cry MORE if they grow up to be people who imitate some of the bad things you see on TV!

THERE ARE LOTS OF THINGS YOU CAN DO instead...

You CAN give them something ELSE MORE PRODUCTIVE TO DO!

Like, READ THEM A BOOK!

"JUST LIKE YOU" is a great character building book that helps kids learn not to bully or make fun of others! Plus the proceeds go to Charity!

"LET'S COUNT KISSES" is coming SOON, illustrated by fantastic Master Artist of Colored Pencil, Karen Hull!

AND - YOU can MAKE your own "I CAN" Book!

Another Idea: Kids can Draw pictures while LISTENING to great music. It helps them become better people!  LIKE this great album from Nancy Doan who started  RECESS MUSIC - They are working to promote GOOD influences for kids through MUSIC! This album is GREAT! It helps kids see the good they can do all around them and is chock full of wise and beautiful thoughts to think about! I liked it so much I even wrote an article on it!

While they are listening and drawing, download my latest FREE POSTERS on HOW to STOP a BULLY, too!  It FITS right in with the music!

AND - Make a 'Thank,Don't Spank' BEHAVIOR CHART!

behavior chart

IT's FREE!!!

Remember - "the hand that rocks the cradle Rules the world!"

YOU are in charge of the world to come!

It's an awesome responsibility

Ruth Elliott, creator of GoMommyGo says,
I'm not ashamed:
I THINK I'M A "MAGNET-OHOLIC!"

What can I say?
I'm 'attracted' to them!

I really do LOVE KJMagnetics! My family is full of scientists and inventors. Why should I be any different? Just make sure you keep them away from really little kids (the magnets, not the scientists!) so they don't swallow them, OK? (Besides, how can you swallow a scientist?)
Oh - and also keep them away from TV sets, electronic games, computers and credit cards. Now that you know to be careful - go have some safe FUN!!!

You can even make a MAGNET FLASHLIGHT with the magnets and instructions HERE!

Or a LEVITATING magnet! Check it out! That really got a rise out of me!

Linda, Ruth & Loretta

The Sanchez Sisters Honor their MOM in their New BOOK!
Linda & Loretta Sanchez have made history in Congress not only by being the first women of any relation to serve in Congress but in their determination to improve children's lives by active involvement in the issues vital to all families. I heard them speak candidly about the values and traditions instilled in them by their Mexican immigrant parents. They especially extolled the virtues of their MOM and her importance in their lives as a good example to her seven children! The two share about their dreams, struggles and accommplishments in the book they have written together, called "Dream In Color". I was so happy to meet them at Vroman's bookstore in Pasadena.
