Welcome To Dawn Fry’s Peaceful Nights and Friendly Days

For more than thirty years I have been caring for children as a licensed childcare provider, nanny and as a baby nurse. My work has given me the opportunity to learn some simple truths about caring for children.

The families I worked with encouraged me to give parenting classes because they liked what they saw and heard when I interacted with children. I preferred to teach children but I was reminded that knowledge is also responsibility so I taught parenting classes. The families lovingly called my skills Dawn Talk. A few years later I started teaching Friendly Communication Skills and Discipline with Dignity in workshops at state and national childcare conferences.

Wishing you peaceful nights and friendly days,
