Moms, Child Psychologist, Book Writer All Have Ideas About Child Separation Issues.
This week, the topic shifted dramatically to child separation anxiety issues. Our Moms' panel had to field comments about leaving the child for the night, the weekend, the first day at school. We went far afield to spread the topic to the clinical psychologist at Shriners Hospital for Children and to an award-winning childrens book writer in Florida. Martha Baur, Ladue Mom My youngest daughter who is almost four tends to struggle a bit with separation anxiety. Preschool drop off is where I see it the most. I have a few tricks up my sleeve that seem to work but believe me...there are those days that nothing will coax her out of the car without a few tears. First and foremost I am adamant about my children getting the proper amount of sleep…

Our Team of Experts Tackle the Anxieties of Standardized Testing for their Children.
Last week we wrestled with the cell phone issue for pre-teens. This week, we're moving up the age bracket. Here's the question we posed to our Moms Council this week: Q. Your child comes to you and says 'I hate taking the standardized tests at school. They un-nerve me and I never seem to do very well. We asked the moms what advice they would give to their children when approaching these tests. Nancy Pasternak, Frontenac Mom I haven't been in such a situation - but having been in many potentially anxiety-producing situations - I hope I could draw on my life experiences to help my child work through their anxiety. With standardized tests, the only "preparation" a child can do is do a 'practice test' and if he/she would like to do that to …
