Happy November! SomethingI love about this time of year is that as we move into the holiday season we are encouraged to reflect on what we’re grateful for. I am thankful every day that I get to work with so many wonderful students, families, and educators!
Check out this 21 Day Family Gratitude Challenge!
If you’re on the hunt for a mental health provider for your child, take a look at this great info sheet on Choosing a Mental Health Provider. It includes information on the types of mental health providers available and what to consider. If you have any questions about this process, I’m happy to assist families and provide referrals!
Contemplating getting your child their first cell phone? This article, Your Child’s First Phone: Are They Ready?, has some really useful things to consider as your family navigates this important decision. I also recommend Common Sense Media.
