How do I encourage my kids to be creative thinkers?

How can we encourage creativity in kids? What type of things can we have in stock for our kids as child care providers and parents? Kids spend so much time in front of screens nowadays. I feel like it is so important that we encourage and help them to foster creative minds.

How do I find a balance when trying to help encourage my child to grow?

How can we best encourage our little ones without pushing too hard or hand holding too much? It's something I really struggle with and I feel like no matter what I do things are out of balance. Anyone else deal with these feelings? Maybe this is the "mom guilt" everyone has been talking about?

Is my child being bullied?

My kiddo is 4 and everyday she comes home and tells me that her "bestfriend" tells her she can't do things. I am scared that this may be bullying. I have talked to the child's mom briefly but she shrugs it off and laughs, says "it's just kids being kids". What should I do?

Is it okay for toddlers to experiment with makeup?

My daughter is 4 and she always asks me to use makeup because she sees me wearing it. I want her to be able to express exactly what she see/feels her role models do, not just me, but i'm scared of what others may think or say.
