helping kids cope with change
element@ry families * sd22 * sel * april 16
The end of the school year can be a nervous time for kids, especially as they may face moving to high school - making new friends and new pressures. We like routine and kids are no different. They thrive on knowing what happens when. "But life doesn’t stay the same – people move houses, kids change schools, friends shift away or stop being friends, parents can separate and almost every year they’ll probably have to face a new teacher." Parents can play an important role in helping their children cope with change, and teach them skills that are valuable in life.
