together for social and emotional learning * sd22 *jan 2016
Hello! I hope you have all had a good holiday and a very happy and healthy 2016. This flyer has good tips on how to help our kids make and keep friends, and how to deal with the troubles that come along the way throughout elementary school. Check out the elementary and teen Pinterest boards if you can - they are always being updated with resources.
Connecting with your Preteen
Staying connected as kids approach the teen years and become more independent may become a challenge for parents, but it's as important as ever — if not more so now.
While activities at school, new interests, and a growing social life become more important to growing kids, parents are still the anchors, providing love, guidance, and support.
And that connection provides a sense of security and helps build the resilience kids needs to roll with life's ups and downs. http://kidshealth.org/parent/positive/talk/preteen.html#cat171
