Parents Helping Parents: Using a Care Calendar for the Classroom
Contributed by Haley Burress
It really does take a village to raise a child. Hopefully you have a village full of grandparents, aunts, uncles, best friends, and neighbors that are available to help you out with parenting advice and assistance. Unfortunately, a health crisis can cause you to seek out a village to help fill in for your role as chauffeur to extracurricular activities, head chef in the kitchen, homework helper extraordinaire, and the many other roles that you take on when you become a Mom or Dad. Sometimes you simply need to rely on parents helping parents and ask for help in a somewhat unlikely place: your child’s classroom.
