  • #WellnessWednesday Video Tip: Don’t look gift horses in the mouth! (aka Don’t refuse babysitting offers)

    As a psychologist specializing in maternal stress, I have heard many, many versions of this story: moms desperately want a break, are momentarily overjoyed when a well-meaning relative or friend offers to give them one, but then ultimately decide to reject the help, as leaving someone else in charge means that they cannot have total control over their children.
