Returning To School In Uncertain Times

Returning To School In Uncertain Times There is no argument that we are living in strange times. The year 2020 has side swiped most of our plans, ideas, and generalizations of what the world should be. As adults it's been hard to make the best decisions for our families, often in real time. For many kids, this year has been a huge disappointment. From the abrupt transition to distance learning last school year, to the uncertainty of what is to come, it can be too much for kids to weather on their own. Parents want to ease as much of the pain as possible, and children are relying on us to help them cope. With so much changing in the world around us seemingly on a daily basis, how can parents encourage their kids during these trying times?     Read More......

How To Keep Your Kids Motivated When They Are Recovering From a Sports Injury

When kids incur sports injuries, it can be difficult to keep their outlook positive.

A few years ago my son hurt his patella tendon in football. It was the first play, in the first game of the season. He had spent all summer looking forward to football camp. He practiced hard with his teammates, five grueling days a week for over a month. When the first game was finally upon us, he was more excited than I had seen him be in a very long time.

Just like that his season was over. A full leg cast for eight weeks and crutches was all he had to show for all that work he put into his game. Not only was this painful and uncomfortable on the exterior, but inside his little heart was shattered. As a parent watching my son experience his first ever broken heart was the toughest thing to witness.

For kids that have sat on the bench due to a sports injury, the pain can go far beyond the physical. Their emotions take a toll as well. They are coping with being unable to do something they love. Oftentimes it’s a sport they have participated in for years. Most aren't mature enough to understand that sometimes life throws a curveball, and we must know how to swing.

Some kids become moody, depressed, or act irrationally while they are taking time off from sports after an injury. Naturally, parents worry when their once motivated child suddenly becomes despondent.

How can parents motivate their kids while they are resting from a sports injury?                      Read More...….
