This week’s resource is from our friends at Zero-to-Three. Caring for Yourself While You Care for Your Children offers some sound advice for parents and caregivers of young children to manage stress and connect with their kids. It’s a quick read but gives important ideas such as being in the moment, grounding oneself, and implementing mindfulness. The suggestions are easy to implement throughout regular daily activities, so they require no extra time, just maybe a bit more attention. All of them are very easy to do. Try Caring for Yourself While You Care for Your Children yourself. You’ll be glad you did!
