CHEYENNE, Wyo -- In this weeks series with Cheyenne Youth Alternatives we had Brenda Schmucker on to give us some advice on making your way back into your child's life.

There are lots of circumstances that can keep you out of your children’s lives, some are out of your control and some are in your control. Whatever it may be, coming back from that can be hard.

Not only is it scary for you but it can be even scarier for your child. “Will they stay?” “What’s going to happen?” “Will they like me?” are just some of the questions that will be running through their head. So it’s important to do what you can to help ease their mind and your transition back into their lives.

You want to take it slow and don't push, respect their feelings, and keep your promises.
