Parents

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.


Below are helpful resources for you and your children as you deal with changing times.
