The Actions of One Inspire the Power of Many: Laura Briley, Day Schools, Tulsa, Oklahoma
Gonzalez-Mena, Janet
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n194 p74-76 Jul-Aug 2010
Laura Briley is a person who makes things happen! Not only is she instrumental in creating a new World Forum Working Group for the Rights of Children in Children's Homes, but in April she organized the first ever Pikler Intensive Training in the United States by bringing two internationally famous infant development experts to Tulsa, Oklahoma. In this article, the author describes Briley's story, which started in the 1970s. This article represents just a glimpse at some of the people whose lives and work have been touched by Briley. One person can create a worldwide web of interconnectedness that goes far beyond that of the children, families, and staff in a community. A person who sees a need and steps forward to do something about it can bring along others and provoke them to action. The web of action continues to spread, involving so many who are working for the good of children and families at home and abroad.
