CLASS IS CLOSED | Working Mother's Dilemma: How much time is enough time?

“In my family I am the parent that spends the least amount of time with the children.  Given that I am a parenting expert, the irony is laughable. However, this reality offers me insight into being the second caregiver and assuming a role incongruous to the value system of our society in which mom is the primary caregiver.”  -Lina Acosta Sandaal, MA, LMFT

In this class we will:

  • Discuss the research on working mothers and how it impacts your children. Both long term and short term effects.

  • The barriers AND solutions to be being a working mom.

  • How to work with your team of caregivers.

  • How to choose quality care for your children
