Why Parent-Teacher Communication Is More Important Than Ever
Many of our kids who learn and think differently have especially struggled without the services or supports they’re used to in schools. As a new school year begins, communication between families and educators is more important than ever. That communication will be key to helping our kids thrive.
Racism and Violence: How to Help Kids Handle the News
How can parents, many of whom are struggling themselves, help children process what they’re seeing on the news, and manage their feelings? There’s no one right answer. That said, there are a few guidelines parents can keep in mind to help kids deal with troubling news about race and violence.
How to Plan Activities to Reduce Challenging Behavior
Unfortunately, there is no “Guidebook for Parents” that tells you exactly how to raise children who behave perfectly at all times. Each child and family is unique, which means that there is no one solution or strategy that is going to work for everyone, every time. However, simple planning ahead can work wonders to help improve your child’s behavior.
