MONDAY MORNINGS WITH DR. MONA: First day of preschool jitters for a pandemic family
Show Notes

On this episode of Monday Mornings with Dr. Mona, I speak with Blair about her son starting preschool. He is a pandemic baby and has had limited social interaction so she is concerned how he will do and how to best prepare him for this transition:  

In this episode we discuss:

  • Normalizing the various types of personalities we all have adjusting to new experiences
  • Why our reaction matters so much
  • How to prepare yourself and your child  


I end each episode with three parenting principles. These principles can be used in various parenting situations, but I explain how the three principles I chose apply to introducing your child to new activities including group childcare.
