Welcome to the Parents Page!
If you are wondering how we got started, all I can say is that it all started with a polar bear. Actually it was a documentary that my son saw in pre-school about the arctic and he saw his first polar bear. From that moment on, his whole entire focus was the Polar Bear and how we can help save them.
If you are asking about how this website came about, then I can tell you a short story about my journey to find a project that my son and I could do together. During my years as a teacher, I had met a mother and her 13 year old son who were in town giving talks to local school children about a documentary he had filmed for HBO Films. He was quite impressive. I was fortunate that I was able to spend some time with his mother and she told me how they both would spend his summers working on his documentaries together and how for special occasions, they would travel together throughout the year either visiting locations or meeting other people to talk about the project.
What I found the most valuable was the fact that this mother and son had a very close bond and that she was helping shape him in more ways then he would ever realize. My son was two years old at the time, but since then I started to look for a project that my son and I could share together and hopefully produce the same kind of teaching tool that would benefit us both.
My son is now 10 years old and we have been working on this site for almost two years. And while I indulge my son allowing him to choose the direction and format of this website, I use it as a teaching tool to help build a foundation that will promote valuable skills within him as he grows into a person whom I am very proud.
This website has been a remarkable experience and has taken my son and I to places that I never imagined we would go. I can honestly say that I too have become a better person and could not think of ever letting this experience go. In turn, I am not only the teacher, but I am also the student. It has been amazing and is something that my son and I will always have together.
