Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

If you see a mama yelling at her kids and going off on them in public . . .

Tell her.

If you see a mama with tears welling up in her eyes and she looks emotionally (and maybe physically) drained . . .

Tell her.

If you see a mama with her hands full at the restaurant – whether she’s feeding a baby or helping a toddler cut up their food – and she looks like she just wants to eat her own food before it gets cold . . .

Tell her.

If you see a mama struggling with her kids in the grocery store . . .

Tell her.

If you see a mama wrangling up a toddler or trying to console a screaming baby . . .

Tell her the one thing that she needs to hear at that moment: That she’s doing a great job.

Because you really are, Mama.

You’re doing great.
