From our Counselor
Greetings, Little Cedars families!
I hope you all are taking advantage of the delights of the spring season! It’s wonderful to have at least a partial return to usual life. Please remember, though, that as we are able to be more safely out and about more, and many kids’ have more activities scheduled, this increase can be stressful or overwhelming to some, especially introverts or those with anxiety. You might note this as a possible factor if your child is withdrawing, reluctant, or irritable these days, and ensure there is enough “down time” amidst the excitement of resumed activities. I teach kids that even good changes take getting used to and can be difficult at first. As with so many issues, “normalizing” the experience can be a great start to easing any distress. Also remember to be sensitive to the fact that different families, (as well as members of the same family) may have differing levels of comfort with increased interaction.
During this past year, many, many kids (and adults!) have spent far too much time in front of screens. It’s understandable that this occurred, of course. However, we can take steps to change that pattern. This is a good time to assess your family’s level of involvement with gaming, social media and the like, decide on changes you feel would be beneficial, and be firm with your children about the limits you set. Easier said than done, but it will only get harder the longer it goes on. You may be faced with a high level of resistance; if so, I encourage you to try and remember that your child may really be struggling with the addictive pull of it, rather than simply being noncompliant. Be open with them about this, if you feel it’s an issue; I am happy to help, as well.
In the spirit of acknowledging our diverse population, I’d like to note that this May has been designated as Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month. This site has a variety of information, music and videos on the subject. https://asianpacificheritage.gov/
Finally, as always, I am so impressed with the level of engagement, commitment and dedication displayed on the part of our students, parents/guardians and teachers, during this uniquely challenging time. Someday, we will have lots of stories to tell about this era! It’s hard to believe we have only five weeks to go; keep up the good work, everyone.
