A Time to Unplug...
#ScreenFreeWeek
 
Screen-Free Week, April 29th - May 5th, is an annual event where children, families, schools and communities are encouraged to turn off screens and "turn on life".
 



 
Disconnect to Reconnect with the people around you!
Head over to Screenfree.org for information on Screen Free Week!

Parents always feel pressure to give their children the things they didn't have. But studies show  simple toys like blocks, jump rope and buckets allow kids to be more creative and use their imagination than the more expensive electronic devices.

Playing together shouldn't be something you feel pressure to do. Enjoy the time you spend with your child! It all passes too soon!

Check out www.Healthychildren.org for great examples on easy, enjoyable activities you can do with your child.

Bus Bullying

Bullying on the Bus : How Should You Handle It?
 
 
School buses are one of the top places where childhood bullying happens. With fewer adults around and a bus driver focused on the road-unable to monitor everything. 
 
How to tell if your child is being bullied on the bus:
 
Recognizing something is going on with your child
Your child makes excuses to not ride the bus or to avoid school entirely
Watch for stress related symptoms such as stomachaches, headaches, nausea and dizziness
 
Kids may worry that if they report the bullying it will lead to more bullying.

Below are a few signs you may see if your children are overloaded

Although stress is a part of life and growing up, you need to intervene when you sense that it is undermining your child's physical or psychological well-being. Here are some clues that stress may be having too negative an effect.
  • Your child develops physical symptoms like headaches and stomach pains.
  • They seem restless, tired, and agi­tated.
  • They appear depressed and are un­communicative about how they feel.
  • They get irritable, negative, and show little excitement or pleasure in activities.
  • They seem less interested in an ac­tivity that was once extremely im­portant to him and prefers to stay at home.
  • Their grades at school begin to fall, and they have less interest than usual in attending classes and doing homework.
  • They exhibit antisocial behavior such as lying and stealing, forgets or refuses to do their chores, and seem much more dependent on you than in the past.
Head over to www.healthychildren.org for more tips on stressed, overloaded children and how to help them out.
