As a momma & a seasoned preschool teacher you are SO spot on and have a way of keeping things simple. Appreciate how aligned you are to our school philosophy!
Will you do an episode on separation anxiety for parents of preschoolers? Your chapter in your book is great but these parents are busy!! Listening might be more accessible. Thanks
Oh wow. Spot on. I have been caregiving in both directions since having my first son, 7 years ago. I feel like “my life” is on hold a lot. I LOVE caring for my loved ones and I am so tired. Was a relief to hear about another’s experience.
Back to School Anxiety
Thanks, Dr. Becky, for your pertinent and timely episode on back to school anxiety. My child has been very emotional about going to child care as I return to work and it has triggered my own doubts and insecurities. I love the quote about being the pilot of the plane. Thanks for these scripts/mantras I can use in my own scenario with my own child.
