In my opinion this seems like the perfect event to get your child (children) involved in. They will be spoken to by those that are doing great jobs within our communities. They will interact with other children in their age bracket, which will help them gain better social skills. I believe its about time we start to motivate and encourage our children to be more creative, social, and enthusiastic about trying new things. And i honest believe the “dazzle me” organization ran by Blenda Yarbro will provide that perfect experience. You can count my Child in, can we count yours? for more info Feel free to check out http://dazzlemeb.wix.com/empowerment
