Little Grieving Hearts.

I often get contacted about how to speak to children about death. They become the forgotten mourners in some ways because we often mistaken that the younger they are, the less likely they are to grieve. If we are old enough to love and feel attached, we are old enough to grieve. We know even babies feel the family stress and grief when loss occurs. Generally speaking, children between the ages of 5-7 can grasp the finality of death. It is important with all ages that we use the term “died.” The terms “sleeping” “went away” “passed away” may feel softer, yet, more confusing for children. For example, if we say “grandma went away to Heaven,” the child may wait in anticipation for her return. Even more concerning, when others “go away” to work, school, vacation etc —there may be anxiety they will not return.

I encourage all who have children in your lives to look for opportunities early on to speak about life and death cycles. Look for the dead bug, bird, flowers etc. Talk about how the bird’s heart stopped beating and that is why he died. For humans, we can explain to children how the heart got weak and stopped working. We also want to assure them ours/their hearts are strong and working well, instilling safety. It’s important to let children of all ages ask questions and keep your answers simple and age appropriate. The younger the child, the less details. Let kids cry, laugh, play, be quiet, be involved in funeral planning by picking out flowers, poems, decor etc. They will show you what they need and it may change with each day. No need to force anything.

Find what brings them safety and let them be in that space as needed. For the children 10 and under -it can be helpful to let them have a new stuffed toy that represents comfort. You hug this first and give them permission to hug anytime for comfort. Much love to the little grievers. Grief is so difficult to maneuver as an adult, I have extra compassion for the littles. Your presence is your best offering. BE with them. This is more profound than any words could be.

Every Child Deserves a Champion
We did when we were children too. If we were very lucky we would have had more than one, but it only takes one to make the difference. If you haven't seen the dynamic Rita Pierson before, treat yourself to this short clip (7 minutes 48 seconds) of her TED talk. 5 million people have watched her and been inspired: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFnMTHhKdkw

Our number one responsibility as parents is to always work towards keeping ourselves emotionally healthy🙏🏻 - Because how we feel has everything to do with how we are able to show up as parents.

Rough and tumble play can be hard to get comfortable with in your home or classroom. However, the benefits are too good to pass up!

Remember that it only leads to real fighting about 1% of the time. Give it a try and see how it can work for you!

My 5-year-old was having a moment, so I took my hand, and started plucking the air around her . . .

Of course she stopped the meltdown to ask what I was doing…

“Shh, sit really still . . . they’re all over you” . . . I said, staying focused.

“What’s all over me?” She asked, almost forgetting why she was upset.

“The grouchies!” I continued . . . “We’ve got to get them off you!!”

At this point she realized that I was being silly and she started laughing.

“No those aren’t grouchies, they’re HAPPIES!!” She said.

“Oh good!” I said, putting one back and plucking other spots.

“No that’s not a grouchy either!!”

“Are they all gone?!” I asked.

“Yes!” She said laughing.

“I want a hug.” She said.

Sometimes we can shift the tone of the moment through play and connection . . . not always, and I promise I know it’s not easy, especially when you’re tired & frustrated . . . but, it's worth it when it works.

You become a soft spot to land after the big emotions pass.

So next time your little one starts spiraling, try plucking those grouchies away.

This is so true!

I even felt this as a parent-infant and toddler class teacher when it would happen every 2 1/2 years or so that we'd say goodbye. And those goodbyes hurt but are so important to embrace. ❤

Thanks to Teachwire for this reminder.

Child Care Settings Still Required to Comply With Face Covering Guidance 05/14/2021

Child Care Settings Still Required to Comply With Face Covering Guidance

Update: Childcares are still mandated to mask.

Child Care Settings Still Required to Comply With Face Covering Guidance On Thursday, May 13, Governor Walz announced an end to the statewide mask requirement, aligning Minnesota with new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on face coverings. CDC announced Thursday that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a mask, either indoors or ou...

Walz talks next steps after updated CDC guidance on masks

So the CDC just mandated an immediate removal of the mask mandate. The governor is signing an executive order tomorrow to remove the mandate in accordance with the CDC. Nothing will change for childcare until guidance is given from licensing. So tomorrow will be the same as today and I will update info when we hear. Thanks for your patience.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, this is from another provider.

I’m going to carefully and mindfully post this... to the best of my ability.

A preface to say that my families (I operate a very small group), are completely respectful . But I also co-admin a licensed provider group. I’m going to try to respectfully share those frustrations.

WE (licensed family childcare professionals) are mandated to follow the decision tree. We can not excuse your child’s cough, congestion, runny nose, or elevated temp. No... we can not excuse these symptoms as part of teething, or allergies. We are in the middle of a PANDEMIC. The pandemic HAS many variants, which we mostly know little about. A variant may be like starting over with a brand new Pandemic.

We are responsible for more than your family. While we understand that missed work is inconvenient, and not desired, there are other families that expect us to be mindful in keeping symptoms out of childcare. Yes.., it COULD be just a common cold. Consider this. If you bring you child with a cough, or runny nose or any other COVID like symptom and it spreads to the group. Because the decision tree dictates that a these symptoms are common symptoms, and requires testing, an alternative diagnosis, or proper length of quarantine... now ALL of childcare needs to meet the same protocol. And if some parent get the symptoms, they are not allowed to go to work Do you see how this trickles through the whole group, not impacting just your family but all families and my income and the possible income of others?

Yes! We are all tired! Yes! We are ALL frustrated. Let’s just understand that we are all in this crazy mess together. # ITTAKESAVILLAGE

Happy Mother’s Day – 7 ways moms can practice self-care

Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s been a difficult year. As a mom or grandma, you may think about this future in which your children will grow. It can be overwhelming. YOU were chosen to be a mother to your child. Your CHILD was chosen to be alive during this time. We can not be our best selves as a mom without taking care of ourselves. So here on some suggestions on how to do exactly that. Happy Mother’s Day! I know at times being a mother is hard but I am always here if or when you need me.
