Maybe you’ve been there. Your child just doesn’t want to go to school or daycare. You’re not sure if she’s truly anxious and struggling or if she is just being defiant. It’s hard to know what to do, especially if your child is truly distressed and crying while she’s there.
Today’s podcast offers some real hope for you if your child is anxious about school or childcare. Dr. Suzy Youngquist (chiropractor and mom of four) and Lynne Jackson (Connected Families Co-Founder) join Stacy Bellward (podcast host) for a conversation about kids who are crying at school or daycare. Suzy shares her personal experience with dropping her child off at daycare, and Lynne brings insight and practical tools you can use today.
In this podcast you’ll discover:
- what feeds children’s fear of school/childcare dropoff
- simple ideas to soothe the fears and address the underlying causes
- how to use play to understand what your child experiences
- ways to address your own anxiety about dropping off your child
- ideas to prep your child’s nervous system for school through connection and play
