Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

Purposeful play is one of the keys to appropriate motor development and hitting those all-important milestones. But what does it mean to create a home for purposeful play? Listen as Dr. Marissa Aron shares her expertise and what to look out for if you’re concerned about your child’s development.
Dr. Aron is a doctor of physical therapy specializing in infant and toddler development. She founded Mom & Me PT, her physical therapy practice in South Florida, to provide families with the support and education they deserve regarding their baby’s movement milestones. Her passion is teaching parents simple ways they can guide their babies through each movement milestone, rather than waiting and hoping for them to happen on their own!
In this episode, we discuss:
Why Dr. Aron decided to go into pediatric physical therapy
What is causing the increase in developmental delays she’s seeing in babies and toddlers
The “containers” that are hindering development in babies
What to do instead of using “containers” when you need to life but baby needs to move
How to create spaces for purposeful throughout a child’s development
Signs that your child has spent too much time in a “container”
