I think your work is so vital to combatting anxieties in both the students and parents.
After speaking with you, we revamped our after school schedule to include only activities that could be brought to our house. I can’t tell you how much it has freed up time in our family schedule without commute time, without babysitters helping transport. I discovered my children LOVE being home cocooned in their things. (We also cut out superfluous activities!)
I continue to try to remind myself of the joy in just being. And I hope I try to model that as much as possible too. A work in progress but I hope recognition and acknowledgement of the problem are good first steps.
Thanks for continuing your insightful work.
