Divorce in the Family: Helping Children Heal and Understand by Cindy McKay, USEP-OHIO

Divorce in the Family: Helping Children Heal and Understand

My friend Peggy called recently to ask for help. Her brother Craig and sister-in-law Barbara are divorcing, and Peg is worried about the children, Sarah and Brian. She thinks that both parents are so angry that they are unable to help the children understand what is happening in order to cope with the coming changes in their lives. Most families experience divorce and have a huge responsibility to help keep the children feeling safe and secure about the future and their relationships with both parents.

Parent and Teach in Prime Time by Cindy McKay, USEP-OHIO

Parent and Teach in Prime Time

What is the best time of day for you or your child to approach a new project? Prime time for you may mean more quality time as you parent or teach. When should you or your child/student tackle the most tedious tasks? Work with your natural rhythms called “circadian cycles” to accomplish more. Knowing your uniqueness may guide expectations at home, work, and school, and help children to understand themselves.
