What a great article ! I went through all of this with my daughter as well. I would never have learned to be a good mom without the help of my ex husbands mom and without going to school for early childhood education

Now I work in childcare programs conducting inspections , licensing , mentoring and investigating . My main objective is to teach childcare staff the importance of empathy and seeing through the lens of a child’s eye with real life experiences . Trauma for a young child is so different than for an adult – it could be something as simple as being yanked out of bed and dropped off at daycare without breakfast

You are definitely making all of the right decisions and choices

Be proud of yourself and never stop learning along side your daughter

Bless you ❤️
