Miss Lori came to National attention in 2006 as the host of The PBS Kids Preschool block which she continued to ﬁlm until 2009. However, she has always been Miss Lori through her company, Miss Lori’s CAMPUS, through which she has produced her 2008 iparenting award winning CD "Music n' Movement TOGETHER!" her family favorite DVD “Activate & Be Great!,” her original mixed media theatrical production “GROWING!,” her children’s stories “Little Miss Lori; Adventures in ﬁve year old living,” and the healthy interstitials she self produced which air on WTTW PBS Kids Chicago.
For the past five years Miss Lori’s CAMPUS has also teamed up with WTTW to produce and perform over 70 free live family concerts a year in the Illinois viewing area. In addition to her performance work Miss Lori is a highly regarded Social Media Inﬂuencer, and much sought after spokesperson, consultant and speaker. Her insightful thoughts about life, parenting and the social media threads that run through them are as real as her music. She has inspired audiences at BlogWorld, Blogalicious, SheCon, Pitch Reﬁnery and the Social Rev Up Brands and Bloggers Conference. Miss Lori also lends her talents directly to businesses, performing her own special brand of "Marketainment," (Marketing + Entertainment), to strengthen the ties between companies and families through live events, videos and posts on MissLori.TV.
Miss Lori has championed brand messages for Sears, Cricket, Whirlpool, Lane Bryant, 1800Baskets, Nintendo, Chrylsler, Tropicana, GM, and Kodak to name a few. She has also served as a spokesperson and ambassador for organizations like The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women BetterU program, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s Healthy Smiles Healthy Children campaign.
But of all the titles Miss Lori holds her favorite is that of mom to her three children, Skyler, KAiANN and Jaedyn. Children and families across the country have fallen in love with Miss Lori's boundless energy, and passion, as well as her commitment to the development of young minds and bodies, all in an efort to strengthen the nuclear family. Her ability to foster creativity and imagination is a gift to treasure for many years to come. As Miss Lori always says “Let Your SMILE Shine On!”TM
Considering a great deal of my day is spent on the computer, it is no wonder that my children are just as fascinated with the machines. These days, kids are growing up with tech in their hands from darn near infancy. There’s no doubt that there is a wealth of material out there for them to engage with, but as a parent it can be a bit overwhelming trying to find age appropriate sites for your kids that you can feel good about, especially for tweens.
My 9 year old Jaedyn isn’t in a hurry to talk to boys; she would much rather play dress up. That can be a hard order to fill. But after a good amount of time, and a lot of trial and error, she and I have found websites that we both recommend for the young fashionista in your household. Consider these 7 sites – Jaedyn tested and Miss Lori approved.
Web Games for Young Fashionistas
My 9 year old daughter loves these websites. I hope your daughter will, too!
We are very happy with these 7 websites, but we are always looking for more. Please share any suggestions for sites that you consider “Kid tested and Mom approved” in your household.
