In this 4-Part OnPoint Parenting Special Series, we explore ways to help our kids navigate their return to school.
Together, Chantelle Quesnelle and Beth McCague discuss helpful tips and strategies to support your children or teens who are reluctant to go back to school, feeling mixed emotions about their return, or simply avoiding the topic altogether! We also have an episode just for you parents, as you are navigating your own concerns or worries about your child’s or teen’s transition. Each 20-minute episode will include resources available on onpointparenting.com.
If you find yourself thinking about specific questions, we have got you covered! You can submit your questions using the form below. We are excited to answer your questions with you and SMCDSB parents in our Live Q&A on August 31st at 7pm! Here we will join a panel of our SMCDSB Psychology Department staff to explore and answer your questions about ways to mentally and emotionally support your children and teens as they transition back to school this fall.
