Thoughts on fostering growth through empathy
- a blog for parents -
Whohoo!!! I can't help but celebrate!
Today is the end of the current school year (at least, locally, for most students in Canada...). While I don't have any school aged children of my own to celebrate this with (and in truth, I do NOT miss those days!), I have oh so many children & families that I work with who are celebrating today. It's a big deal!
For me, the biggest reason to celebrate is the end of the rush and hurry that families have to undertake to get kids out the door, get them sorted out at the end of the day, and get them to bed so they get enough sleep to function the next day! That doesn't include the stress of daily household chores, mealtimes, extracurricular activities and homework! Summer holidays are truly a much needed break! A chance to breathe and re-set.
So, for today, I'm just sending out warm, fuzzy, loving thoughts to all parents and school aged children wishing you a very happy last week of school and a wonderful start to summer holidays!! Enjoy!
