I remember walking down the seemingly endless aisles of parental advice books when I was pregnant with my first child. My head swimming, I purchased a huge stack of books in hope that at least one of them would give me the answers I knew I would need after my baby arrived.
When my baby was born a few months later, I had plenty of advice for all the newborn stuff – and thanks to the help of my family, friends and countless hours of reading, I did a pretty good job as a first-time mom...
And then in the blink of an eye, my tiny little baby grew into a kid.
So what happens after the baby phase is over? What happens when your little one is in that “middle stage” where they are beginning to explore their own independence yet still require so much of your time and attention? When they start to spread their little wings and begin kindergarten, when they become a big brother/big sister, when they have endless questions and big, scary feelings that they need help sorting through?
Early Childhood educator & preschool owner Christine Kyriakakos Martin has spent over 40 years helping parents with the every-day challenges they face raising their young children.
