How are you and your family dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic?
Our family has been taking it day by day. We do all we can to protect ourselves and others. Although it hasn’t personally affected any of us (thankfully), our hearts ache for those who have had to fight this terrible virus.
What do you do to relax?
Read, exercise, or watch a movie.
What else would you like to tell us about yourself?
I am a stay at home mom to my one and three year old. I am always looking for fun and interactive activities for them to do and we love the Connecting for Kids programs.
What benefits has Connecting for Kids brought to you and your family?
We love it! It's great for both my kids ages.
Which have been your favorite Connecting for Kids resources?
Music Therapy & More.
The area where I have grown the most...
Learning to be patient with my children and their emotional needs.
When my child's behavior gets out of control, I feel...
Helpless, sometimes. Other times I realize that it's okay and it will be okay.
The hardest thing for me to learn was...
That parenting is more so about learning things about yourself than learning about your child. I've learned so much about who I am from becoming a parent and I am so grateful for this opportunity to love and nurture my babies the way they should be.
Do you have any recommended resources such as blogs, websites, or books that we can share?
I currently have my own blog website where I write about gentle parenting methods. Connecting with your child on an emotional level so they always feel loved and understood. My blog site is The Mindful Mom blog.
