April is National Child Abuse Prevention MonthPlease remember:Sometimes we all lose our patience with our childrenSometimes we take our troubles out on our childrenBUT ALL OF THE TIMEwe can take deep breathes; go for a walk with our children; call a friend; jump on a trampoline; blow bubbles; scream into a pillow; cry in the shower, etc. We can also speak with a professional.BECAUSE WHAT WE WILL NEVER WANT TO BE DOING is looking at our child in a hospital bed or at a funeral home.GET HELP so it NEVER GOES THAT FAR!The School Counselor bulletin board is on the 1st floor main hall. Please remind your child of the importance of good work habits. After all, school is their job. Being on time helps students to not feel so anxious. Having a good breakfast at home, or here at school, is important for their brain energy. Being prepared for the day by making sure your child has remembered what to bring to school will help them, and you, to not feel anxious. Above all, please make time to sit down, and ask your child how their day went. After that, do something together for a few minutes. Whether it is talking, taking a walk, playing a game together, or letting them help in some way with dinner, you and your child will be able to use this to start off the evening right.Alert...Alert! Some of our students have confessed to staying up too late! Some are sneaking to play video games. Others do not have a set bedtime. They are coming to school sleepy, and not focused. Please help by setting a bedtime, and sticking to it as best you can.
