“Last year my preschooler cried every single day at drop off until finally, after three months of stressful goodbyes, I called Caron. Her advice made complete sense and within days, my son was hugging me goodbye with no tears. We still use Caron’s tips over a year later to help our son cope with new experiences or transitions. My favourite thing about Caron’s approach is that she is both practical and relatable.”
