Check out this link to an interesting article about school climate and our boys emotional needs!
School is starting before we know it!  I hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer vacation...and if you are a typical working parent, I hope you have survived the stress of juggling a houseful of kids and work all summer long!

It is time to start getting the kids ready for the school schedule.  If they have been staying up late and sleeping in, begin to make some changes, a half hour at a time, getting them ready for the start of the school day.

If the summer does have you stressed out, or if the back to school transition has you pulling your hair out, consider signing up for our September Love and Logic parenting workshop.  This practical, fun workshop helps eliminate the power struggles and bring the joy back to being a parent.  Beginning Monday September 16th, the workshop meets once a week for seven weeks.  Parents who took part in last Spring's workshop gave it rave reviews.  Real life logical solutions that work to real life, common parenting issues.

Cost for the workshop is $30 plus an additional fee for on site babysitting.  Special needs children can be accommodated by our professional staff, just give me a call to discuss your child's' needs! (860) 844-5355

Registration forms are available on our website WWW.Granby-Ct.Gov under the Youth Services Department.
