What do you like best about the work you do? The best part of my job is helping parents see their children through understanding eyes. I have actually witnessed the tension leave a parent’s shoulders as I discuss why it is developmentally appropriate for their child to do what they are doing and then help them manage the situations rather than trying to “make them stop” a behavior. Plus I get paid to play!
