As adults, we know how our world can be rocked by changes big and small. Helping kids navigate these changes is not always black and white. Our children bring their own personalities and understanding to situations that make their reactions different than our own. Fortunately, Dr. Angela Axelrod has many insights on helping kids navigate transitions big and small.
Helping Kids Navigate the Transitions of Life
Our children experience simple transitions like the move from elementary school to junior high or moving neighborhoods. They also experience huge transitions like the loss of a close family member or divorce. Inevitably, each child will react differently – different from parents and other siblings. Appropriately handling a child’s reaction can be challenging. Dr. Axelrod, a School Psychologist, offers simple advice on handling these situations effectively.
