Sleep issues are the most common toddler problem I see in my child therapy practice. Toddler sleep can be an ongoing issue because they just won’t sleep! They fight going to sleep, they fight staying asleep and they don’t get enough sleep. It also seems like they instinctually know that we, as parents are the most…

Tears at Camp…and Not From My Child:

Yes, I was that mom that could barely get enough strength to leave camp this morning and get on with my day.  The one who had tears in her eyes, the one whose heart you could hear pounding and the mom who looked sad and mournful.  I know what you are thinking.  How could I be mourning my new found freedom of having three kids in camp?  Why wasn’t I shouting “Hooray” and celebrating my day ahead sans kids?

The Thought of Motherhood

While it is true and common knowledge that motherhood is not an easy job, it has its perks. There are so many emotional ties to this job from the early pregnancy way into the child's adulthood. They make you cry with tears of joy and tears of pain. There are some days children may make you wish you could start over. Then, there are days, you know exactly why you became a mother and you…

Crib vs. Bed: When is it time for the Switch?

Many parents ask me how they know when it is the right time to move their little one from the crib to a toddler bed.   Unfortunately the answer is going to be different for everyone because every child is different.  The good news is that you will figure it out.

Any new stage and transition in your child’s life is difficult (for you both), but in time, it all settles in and makes perfect sense.  As always, Mommy Masters is here to support you and…

A Mother's Day Reminder: Reflect and Relax

I have heard from so many moms lately about how stressed and worn out they all are.  One of them would be me.  We can all relate to the ever popular, “If only there was one more hour to the day” and the, “I just can’t get it all done” slogans.
