Our resources are intended to make your journey as a parent, caregiver, teacher, or friend, as smooth as possible.

“I keep my CARES handouts posted to my pantry wall, and with each child, I go back to the basics (i.e, the 24 hour rule, avoid being your child’s best friend, resist the urge to rescue, and many more). These nuggets have provided a sense of security and sanity through many challenging moments of childrearing.”
