Happy June 1st!  It's a little June Gloomy this morning where I am, but I always love the cool June mornings because it's like the old quote, "It's darkest before the dawn".  We should enjoy the cool mornings knowing that summer is almost here! (And we will be complaining about how hot it is!)


For many, school is already out and for others, we are in the home stretch.  There are lots of changes coming, lots of activities leading up to those changes and you may see an increased stress level in your kids as a result.  Be patient, stay calm and give your kids as many healthy ways of dealing with changes and shifts as possible.

  • Simply recognize what is happening and that change is hard.
  • Create structure during the unstructured times of summer.
  • Make plans and let your kids know what to expect.


Hang in there...beach days are coming soon!!


Wishing you balance,

Speaking Engagements Available!

Speaking to Parents in Groups, Schools, and Church/Synagogue Communities is one of my greatest joys. It enables me to share what I'm most passionate about and to give more parents tools and inspiration to make their families even better.
