The Tough Stuff

Hello Creative Minds Family!


I’m Suzanne, one of the Junior Toddler Teachers here at CMLC!

I recently felt the call to start writing on our blog to help share information and create a supportive space for our families and my fellow teachers.

When I consider what hardworking parents and teachers really want and need, I think it’s simply more happy time with their kiddos! That might entail spending fewer hours figuring out how deal with the day-to-day issues that can really eat away at precious time, and that left unchecked can leave us exasperated and exhausted.

So I decided to focus on bringing you the CliffsNotes from the best blogs, books and social discourse out there right now for dealing with the most challenging issues we face as caregivers.

You can frequent the sources (which I’ll always link to), and/or you can check here for the gist of it! I know when I’m looking for help with a specific issue, I feel like, Somebody, just tell me what to try!

So please jump in, share what you want to hear about, and what’s working for you!


Upcoming topics include ideas for keeping calm and compassionate when dealing with:


  • When A Kiddo Runs Away From You
  • Aggression & Anger
  • Testing Limits
  • Sibling & New Baby Issues
  • Magic Words and Phrases for Parents & Teachers
  • Diaper Change Shenanigans
  • Eating Issues
  • And More! :)


Leave a comment with another topic that’s big for you right now, or share the one you’re most looking forward to discussing!


Much Love,
Teacher Suzanne
