The Counselor's Corner

GRATITUDE CONVERSATION STARTER: Discuss your family history with your child. What are some triumphs in your family that you are grateful for? Who are the people that you’re grateful for? The places? Share those joyous details with your family. If you have pictures or other artifacts to share, that would be a great addition to the conversation.
