The Vroom Corner – Summer Time Tips

April is an important month – it is National Child Abuse Prevention Month! This is a month where many individuals and organizations come together to highlight the importance of systems and programs that support our families as part of a bigger effort to keep children safe. As a community we can work together to prevent child abuse and neglect. There are many great resources across Nevada that seek to prevent Child Abuse in many different ways. Please reach out to the Children’s Cabinet to find more information about our resources. It is our mission to keep children safe and families together, and we whole-heartedly live by this mission in all of our programs.



Vroom is different from other educational apps. Vroom is the app that is meant to be put down in order to use it correctly. It has many tips that you can use for your next summertime outing. Going for a walk? Use the Path Predictor tip. Looking to have a picnic and relax? Try the Cloud Watching tip. Or are you looking to play a game to pass the time on a trip to the park? Play ‘Red Light, Green Light’ and try this tip to make the game more challenging for your child’s growing brain. If you’re on the go and not sure how to pass the time with young child, download the Vroom app or text GROW to (or CRECER to receive Tips in Spanish) to 48258.

Vroom Tip: Practing Perspective Taking

Children are little scientists! They love asking questions, are eager to observe the people and things around them, and are constantly experimenting to learn how the world works. Try this tip to encourage your preschooler to take a hands-on approach to their own learning. When children play an active role in their own learning, we are encouraging them to be life-long learners. It also helps them to better understand the subject matter. Not to mention it helps build your relationship with your little one!

Los niños son como pequeños científicos! A ellos les encanta hacer preguntas!  Los niños  ansían aprender y observar a las personas y al ambiente que los rodea. Los niños estan continuamente experimentando para entender como el mundo funciona. Pruebe esta sugerencia para animar a su niño de edad pre- escolar a manipular su propio aprendizaje. Promover la curiosidad de los niños tiene muchos beneficios. Cuando los niños toman parte en su propio aprendizaje, ellos obtienen un mayor entendimiento del material que están discutiendo. Los estamos alentando a ser aprendices de por vida, pero lo más importante es la relación que está desarrollando con su niño.

June is a month of many celebrations. June 18th is Father’s Day! We want to celebrate all the wonderful fathers and father figures out there! As the video says, every little thing you do makes a difference in your child’s life. Being a parent or caregiver is a challenge at times, but the hard work is so worth it and does not go unnoticed. The research is in, children whose fathers are involved in their daily care such as feeding, bathing and playing together, tend to be more confident; and, as they grow older, enjoy stronger social connections with peers. For more information on the research on fatherhood click here.
