Parenthood is a journey. We want the best for our kids. We want to see them grow, thrive, be healthy and happy.
However, parenthood does not come with instructions.
Sometimes our children struggle and as parents we want to find ways to support them. The advice you might get sounds so easy but in reality figuring out how to do it when you have multiple children or at the end of the day when you’re tired or stressed…it can be overwhelming.
We’ve all been there. I’ve been there too! I am a behavioral pediatrician, a researcher and a child health advocate. I am also a wife and mother of two amazing children that I get to watch develop and become their own beautiful selves. But let’s face it, we’re all human and we all wish sometimes we can get a re-do day.
So, I want my blog to be a place to share handouts and resources I have developed over time working with children and families in my clinic and through my research. I imagine this site to be a place for parents, providers, educators and anyone who works with children to find some helpful resources for child development, behavior and overall wellness.
Everyone needs a helping hand from time to time. I hope this place has resources that will improve communication between parents and children and for all those helping to support you and your child.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll let me know what you think by chatting with me sometime! Make sure you click on the menu above and click “BLOG” for my posts and handouts.
