*I am NOT a doctor… That would require a few more years of schooling on my part. After being a student for 18+ years, I’m all set for now. Nothing written or shared on this website should be taken as a diagnostic tool in any way, shape, or form. I am giving my personal input and educated opinion as a child development specialist and mother.

*Though I am not a doctor, I am a certified child life specialist specifically trained and educated on how to provide developmentally appropriate hospitalization coping strategies, non-pharmalogical pain management strategies, explaining a new diagnosis, prepping or debriefing before/after medical procedures, coping skills during medical procedures, or how to talk about the tough stuff-like death and dying.

*I do not know everything, nor claim to- but I will try my very best to answer your questions to the fullest extent of my professional knowledge.

*This is take-it-or-leave-it advice and information, if you don’t care for my response- that’s fine! Every family, child, and household is going to be different and that is 100% OK.

*Information will change and evolve over time as research continues in the field of child development. That is the beauty of the human race- always striving to attain more accurate knowledge! Posts I make may include information that will be different one, five, or ten years from now. 

*You will have to deal with all of my grammatical and spelling errors if they should happen. Which they probably will. A lot. Sorry!

*I reserve the right to delete any posts, comments, or even this whole blog if I so choose at any given time.  

*I reserve the right to choose which questions to answer, and I may not answer every question that is submitted.
