School Counselor Ms. Debbie

This is a time we never quite expected. Most children do not handle change and stress well. Keeping a schedule, reinforcing rules, and good

communication is important. Children experience all the emotions we do without coping skills.

The following categories can be googled for helping children with stress, anxiety, depression and anger:

Tai Chi For Kids


Relaxation for kids

Letting go anger

Good luck to all of us during such an historical time. Please use this as a positive time to bond with your child. In life we all face struggles, springboard off this stressful time to teach your child positive coping skills. Play, exercise, art, music, reading, and creative play are

great strategies through stressful times. Modeling coping skills is essential for lifelong learning. Parents Are Their Child’s First Teachers.
