  1. MAKING YOUR JOURNEY AS SMOOTH AS POSSIBLE

“I keep my CARES handouts posted to my pantry wall, and with each child, I go back to the basics (i.e, the 24 hour rule, avoid being your child’s best friend, resist the urge to rescue, and many more). These nuggets have provided a sense of security and sanity through many challenging moments of childrearing.” (Linda C. mom of middle, high school and college students)

“I leave the resource books out on our coffee table, in the kids’ laundry baskets, or in the bathroom…, not just for my kids, but for my husband’s perusal too!!” (Christine S. mother of 4)
