Reading Aloud: A Pathway to Talking about Feelings With Young Children
Fall is officially here, and its cooler days and longer nights provide a great opportunity to curl up and read with your pre-schooler. In my work as a parenting consultant, I often encourage parents to read books with their young children as a way to facilitate discussions about difficult feelings their children may have. Direct conversations about their own feelings are sometimes difficult for children, and books can be a useful aid.

New Mom’s Group
The New Mom’s Support Group is a bi-monthly informal meeting for moms of newborns held every other Wednesday from 1 pm to 2 pm in our Darien office. The goal of this group is to assist in making this exciting but scary and exhausting period in a parent’s life as fulfilling as possible and to serve as a support system. It is a place to share concerns, questions, and experiences.
