With the constant bombarding by the media, news, and internet it is difficult to trust our children with other people.

Today on the show I am responding to a listener’s question about childcare and trusting our children with other people and other childcare providers. I talk about the inner work we, mothers, have to do in order to have an easy transition and pass on our child over to someone else’s care, and also about different childcare options available, how, where and what to look for when looking for the right person or care facility.
