The Little Things are the Big Things

The first few years of life – between birth and kindergarten – are when your child’s brain will grow the fastest. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you may be home with your child now more than ever.

You got this. It’s important to know that you were made to be your child’s first and most important teacher. Don’t let that scare you. Your child was born ready and excited to learn. They just need your love and guidance to get a great start.

Self Care

Things are weird right now. It’s not controversial to say it -- we’re all feeling it. Especially for parents, the massive disruption of normal operations that is COVID-19 has been, at times, absolutely catastrophic. Nevermind the genuinely horrifying outcomes -- evictions, illness, the inability to see loved ones safely. For many of us, these massive disruptions are compounded by the smaller day-to-day frustrations and hangups that can make a simple day home with kids a grind.

That’s why it’s key that we parents take a moment -- sometimes just a moment! -- to ourselves. Looking after our own mental and physical health can be extremely difficult, but self-care is more important than ever.
