Here we are in the last month of school before summer break. While many of us are gearing up to prepare for summer activities, some students and families may have a variety of emotions around the year ending. Next year brings change, a new grade, a new teacher, or even a new school for some. Mixed emotions and thoughts may arise in our kiddos. Here are some quick and simple coping strategies to try:
- 5-4-3-2-1 Grounding Exercise: A coping skill you can use or have your children use to help get you through tough or stressful situations.
- Progressive Muscle Relaxation: This can be used during stressful situations to help calm our mind and bodies and help bring awareness to the tension we carry with us daily.
