I would like to introduce myself and 4 NEONINOS (study your way) ;
My name is Anna van Dooren and I recently moved to Dénia together with my two youngest children.
We are Dutch and are rapidly learning the Spanish languages.
I am a mother of 4 children and a grandmother of 1. My oldest 2 children still live in the Netherlands and are both studying. My oldest daughter studies International IT management and my oldest son studies ICT hardware and recently took up Trading. In fact my oldest daughter helped to create my website! She has her own company ONLINEPANDA.NL, please do check it out!
I come from a technical career, working at TU-Delft, TNO and ROTEB, but as years gone by my focus changed direction.
My children always ran into problems at school. I think this will sound very familiar to many parents and schools in one way or the other.
So I went back to studying for another few years. This time to be prepared and to learn all that might be needed to help children with their learning/ study problems.
And I am happy I did!
My youngest son ran into school problems at the very beginning.
He was so happy to finally start school at almost 4. He reading and writing at 3 as like my oldest children, which meant for me this was not weird or not normal. So I didn’t think much of it. But 6 months later he refused to go! He cried for hours and he got very sad and depressed. He lost all his curiosity in the world and lost his happiness.
Within 6 months he turned from a happy, chatty, curious little boy into a screaming, kicking and crying little boy who refused to do anything any more. In the end he wasn’t able to function normally, he was even afraid of going to the bathroom by himself. He lost everything he ever was before going to school.
Now this might sound as an extreme story.
Not all children have these huge problems with studying or school. Most children are quit happy going to school, but at times some help can be needed to get them on the right learning track again.
In this I offer my help;
For advice or for full courses which the children can receive to help them on their way again to be fully curious!
Please do check my website for info on the courses and more!
