Positive thoughts during hard times 💜

Hi ladies just wanted to share some positive thoughts during these tough times! Leave me a comment letting me know how you are staying positive 😊
I’m staying positive cuz even though things are scary right now I know how much I am helping the families I serve at my FCC and I know how much that allows those families to help our community. Feeling very lucky to be able to work with children and seeing their smiling faces every morning. Sending sunshine! ☀️💖

Not sure if I’m ready to step away from my job for the baby - help!

Career question! Who’s had the job of your dream or a leadership position that you worked really hard to get to and then a baby led you to step down or walk away from your job/position? What'd you do? Any advice?

I have a 1.5 year old that will not sleep through the night and is having so much difficulty falling asleep… other mamas, would you suggest working with a night nurse or sleep specialist? I’m really tired…

My older one is so jealous of the new baby! Any suggestions?

The jealousy phase just hit my toddler HARD. She not only refuses to interact with the baby, but she also takes it out on all of us–my mom, my husband, everyone!! What can I do?!

Trying to find thoughtful and beautiful children’s books that talk about autism!

Hi there! I’m interested in finding a few books that have characters with autism in them. There’s an autistic child in my son’s class, but it’s also something that I’d love for him to learn about early on. Any suggestions? Thank you!!!

Separation anxiety at daycare - help?

My 3-year-old son is starting daycare soon and I’m afraid he’ll have a lot of separation anxiety - he hasn’t spent hardly any time away from my husband and me until now. I don’t want it to be traumatic for him (or us!). Any tips to prep for the first day?
