How Are Our Kids Doing? From Surviving To Thriving –
How Can We Help?
Happy Spring to Everyone- Hoping you have enjoyed these first days of real Spring weather – we are definitely heading in the right direction. The last weeks of school are upon us, and summer days of vacation are just around the corner. Over these past couple years as Covid has subsided and life is getting back to normal- I hear from so many parents that it is a new normal with their children. Daily life is different and more difficult to navigate.
Parents and teachers have shared that the children – post pandemic are having difficulty expressing themselves – being comfortable with the give and take of communication. Teachers say that the children are not always addressing adults with respect – like they forgot how – or were too little to learn before March, 2020. So this May SWW 5/16th 7PM ZOOM meeting is going to be an informal panel we will all share on:
“2023- How Are Our Kids Doing? From Surviving To Thriving – How Can We Help?”
Communication, Social Engagement, Family Time, Volunteer Opportunities,
Places To Go, Childhood Fun Without Electronics and Social Media
Bring your Concerns, your Ideas, your Successes, your Summer Plans. –
