Mann, Mary Beth; Thornburg, Kathy R.
Child Care Information Exchange, n122 p26-29 Jul-Aug 1998
The concepts, causes, and issues surrounding maternal guilt have significant implications for early childhood professionals. Child care providers can assist parents in choosing appropriate child care; promote positive communication and rapport with parents; reassure parents that maternal anxiety is normal; promote understanding of the concept of healthy separation; and exhibit sensitivity to mothers' need for involvement.
