What’s different for kids today:


Kids learning how to talk about their feelings

. . . . . . . . . .

Kids are Googling everything so they diagnose themselves.

We need to help kids learn to name their feelings but keep perspective.

Today’s parents are over attending.

Today’s kids are busy. Busyness leads to exhaustion which leads to a lack of awareness. Melissa Trevathan

We need to listen to and understand our kids but then we need to help our kids take steps forward. David Thomas
