A @trello board to get kids excited - continued

This is a continuation of the previous post titled - A trello board to get kids excited. At the time of writing this post, the previous post had 198 page views. I wish people commented. I did get some positive feedback on Twitter. The Trello twitter account re-tweeted my tweet and also sent out a second tweet advertising the page. Thank you very much. I hope a lot of parents and kids benefited and had fun as a result.

Trello people: Idea - How about a 'Trello Kiddo'? Perhaps you could offer that to schools that give iPads for each kid to take home with them. Get them when they are young.

When a kid does something religiously, regularly and feels great about it and can't wait to tell everyone about it, you know you've done well as a parent. We realized that we needed a separate column to keep track of 'Special accomplishments'. Positive reinforcement that you can see with your eyes!

Some parents feel like they haven't done enough for their kids, particularly during summer. I always felt that. But, not anymore. If we think of an abstract topic to talk about, we make a card for it right away and make it a point to look up that information later.

Example:

The special achievements column makes my son feel great. He doesn't realize how good that makes ME feel. Now, the summer seems too short. So much to do and so little time.

A birds eye view.
