We Are Here to Help with the Flurry of Back-to-School!
August 15, 2023 – Miami, FL – Back to School, those words create a flurry of emotion in each of us. What are the first words that pop into your mind? What are the first words that pop into your child’s mind? Now is a good time to get in touch with these emotions and talk about them with your child(ren). Keep in mind that these emotions will differ from child to child. We invite you to create a word list for emotions and feelings about going back-to-school. Excited, happy, scared, disappointed, rushed, hurried, overwhelmed, sad, busy, eager (add more or your own). Take this list and ask yourself to describe your feelings about the back-to-school season. Take this same exercise and repeat it with your child(ren). There are no right or wrong answers, this exercise is meant to recognize you and your child’s feelings to stimulate an open conversation!
The National Family Partnership is a parent’s cheerleader, let us know how we can help you.
Happy School Year 2023-2024! May it be your best year yet.
