Day 14 - Back to Work

Today's Tip - Prepare for your return to the work force

Whether you're male or female, going back to work after your infant is born is tough. You'll both probably go through some seperation anxiety, and you don't need to feel like a bad employee if you call home or call your day care to make sure everything is OK. Once your baby is old enough to know you're leaving him, make sure he knows your coming back. Focus on the fun he'll have at day care or at home, not the fact that you'll be apart. Reassure him that you'll be back to pick him up, and don't get into the habit of long goodbyes. Pretty soon he'll assimilate to his day care providers and the other kids, and you'll only need to check in once or twice to make sure all is well.

Hi, Thanks for your blog! It is great you are helping parents like me to grow by your thoughts and idea�s. I found your post on google during my search on the lastest info on Behaviour problems with children. I was intrigued, so I had a look ..., and although it was not really what I was searching for, I am glad I read it! Just thought I would stop and say thanks. Have a good day.
