It's already April and Spring Break is almost behind us.  It's the home stretch of the school year.  How was this year? Did your kids accomplish all you'd hoped they would? Did they thrive or barely survive? It's a time to reflect on what worked and what didn't and how next year could be better for everyone.


Many kids barely get through each day while others are slaying dragons right and left and making the most out of their lives.  Who are your kids on this spectrum? Are they trying to communicate something to you about what they need? Remember, kids don't often use their words to tell us they need something, they usually use their behavior and we have to interpret what's actually going on.  Sometimes, they use their words and we don't listen to them.


As Spring comes into full bloom, it's a great time to reflect and be insightful about how everyone is doing in your family.  Be honest with yourselves and ask "how can I support you in being even more successful?"


Happy April, Everyone!!


Wishing you balance,
