My name is Paige Lindblom and I am the founder of fledglingkids.com. As a former sensitive, creative, and quirky kid, I spent many hours daydreaming and asking myself “what if” questions. After receiving a graduate degree in Early Childhood Special Education, I worked for the next 18 years as a special education teacher, early interventionist, and preschool director. After years of talking to parents and interacting with children (including my own sons), I felt led to create a practical resource to support parents and children through common social-emotional issues.
Originally a social-emotional toy and book store, fledglingkids.com was reinvented as a parenting resource through assistance from the University of Virginia’s Innovation Lab. The new website offers encouragement, advice and product recommendations. I hope you find it helpful. If you have an idea for a new topic or if you need support on a specific social emotional issue, please email me at [email protected]
