We had the good fortune of connecting with Etel Leit, MS and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Etel, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I started my business to inspire better communication between children and parents and other caregivers. As research finds that many social learning theorists found that parent-child relationship and child’s development are interconnected. The parent-child relationship affects the children throughout their lives, especially in a child’s infancy (Bowlby 1969). If the world will be better in communication, how better the world will be. It is all start with early childhood and education.
