    CDA Plus... Childcare Dollars Accelerator, Plus! A New Professional Journal.

    in Education

    The CDA, or the Child Development Associate, is an important credential for those in the professional childcare space.   Commercial center Directors, and even family child care providers have this credential either because it is mandatory for the job they hold, or as a step towards professionalism and career advancement.

    Childcare is one industry that is here to stay no matter how the economy changes, however, the profitability of this industry is still subject to all the challenges of other businesses, even though demand for this service will never go away.

    Maintaining the CDA credential requires continuing education, and this education opportunity is prolific, but most of what is available surrounds the job itself - how to care for the kids, curriculum, safety, center specs, and more.  Very litte niche specific education and resources exist that talk about money and profitability in this space.  This publication speaks to your personal development as a leader in the industry, and most importantly, to your money.

    The CDA Plus..., The Childcare Dollars Accelerator Plus, is a professional journal recently launched to speak to that need.

    The founding editors are myself, Trudy Beerman, the Lifestyle Upgrades the Debt-Free Wealth Way Money Coach, and veteran CPR/Safety Trainer to the childcare industry; and Nadine Burnside - a 30+ year veteran of the childcare industry, and owner/Director of two commercial childcare centers.

    You know childcare.  Now, let's talk business!   If you are an owner/director in the childcare space, or if you hold the CDA credential, this show is for you.

    Quality Care for Precious Cargo: Smart Childcare

    in Women

    Returning guest Judy Helm Wright (AKA Auntie Artichoke) will talk about childcare issue—one of concerns many mompreneurs have, especially for some of us who still have very young kids.    

    Juggling a mom-biz while tending to the needs of our children is the ultimate balancing act we all need to perform. And for most of us who have our business office at home, finding that previous and quiet time to tackle business-related tasks can be a challenge with kids around.

    So what solution do we have? Childcare…but not just any kind of childcare.

    Mommy Wars

    in Parents

    Laurette Lynn offers commentary and perspectives on the ongoing battle between parents who make contrasting decisions in childcare.  From co-sleeping to vaccinating, viewpoints, opinions and sometimes even truths of "right and wrong" are loosely defined.  The struggle continues and many advocates fiercely defend and promulgate the agenda and plight of parental decisions.   But Laurette proposes that the ferocity of activism is not always in the best interest of the child, but is instead a otherwise unnecessary stroke of ego.

    Listen in to the pondering, then the suggested solutions offered on how to communicate our views more effectively and truly make it about learning and improving as parents, and as people.

    "Men Talk Monday" Why We Still Don't See Working Men as Fathers

    in Family

    While mothers will likely get much of the attention for their flood into the workplace and the barriers they still face, fathers will at least partially share the spotlight. This comes after a few smaller meetings, including one on working fathers specifically. Fathers, on the other hand, are a sure bet. While women with children make less than childless ones, fathers actually make more than men without kids. We still don’t see men as children’s caregivers, inside or outside of the home. Even the government has a problem with this: The Census counts mothers as the “designated parent” no matter what the actual family situation may be and only counts dad’s care if mom is gone.  Fathers increasingly want to be fathers. Pew found 46 percent of fathers felt that they don’t spend enough time with their kids, compared to less than a quarter of mothers. They are equally stressed about balancing their work and their families. Two-thirds of fathers in a 2011 survey wanted to split childcare duties with their spouse.

    And yet of those same fathers, two-thirds admitted that their wives provided more care. The reality is that no one can really do enough in either arena, so everyone is making a choice. It’s just that the choices are different depending on the gender. So how can we give men what they want and let them be parents as well as workers?
