As a group we went through the various stages of transition and talked about the importance of taking care of yourself before you can take care of your children. We discussed successful transitions you may have experienced in the recent past and appreciated that we are able to face a challenge; asking for help along the way. Family rituals and routines are often lost during transition times, but they are of great importance and crucial when trying to settle in a new area/school/job. If you used to play board games as a family on a Friday evening, take them out and continue with your family tradition. Your children will thank you for it and it will bring some normalcy into your lives.
We hope to host another parent workshop at the end of the month. Stay tuned for details!
