Now that summer is over and some version of school is back, your children are going through the obvious changes of going back to school and the changing seasons. They have been going through the changes due to covid since last spring. So, if you are also going through a family change at this same time, please make certain that you consider your children. One major issue that damages children is conflict. Change is hard sometimes but conflict is a disaster. Please remember to keep your children first as you go through family issues. Make time for joy in your child’s life. Kick the soccer ball. Listen to music and sing songs. Take walks. Talk. You and your children will get through these difficult changes but find some peace and joy and block out the toxic. Change is inevitable but conflict causes lasting damage.
