About The Site

friendship_hands_friendsLet’s face it raising kids is difficult. I have navigated myself in parenthood by learning through trial and error and using my skills as a Certified Child Life Specialist.

This blog is filled with helpful tips on preparing your child for new experiences, from going to the doctor to welcoming a new sibling.

There are suggestions to incorporate play into your child’s lives as well as creative expression through art, music and book making.

Children can be faced with unexpected situations; losing a loved one, moving and being hospitalized. I have a variety of coping strategies and resources that may be of use.

Through the eyes of a parent and a child life specialist, I hope this blog will give you new ideas and provide support in working with children.
