What Working Parents Say 
"At the beginning of shelter in place, my kid would interrupt my zoom meetings regularly. I started locking the door, and the kids started banging on it- loudly. When I took the Positive Parenthood course, I learned strategies to help my children wait, and help them know when I was available and when I was not. I'm much less stressed now, because we have figured out a routine and even it is a hard day, I have the tools to make it through." Mom from Danville, CA
