A friendly reminder to all of my kiddies that going back to school may be brutal for some kids. Watch and listen carefully for those who may be nervous, sad, or lonely….even the teachers! Be compassionate and kind. A smile can go a long way to easing stress.
AND don’t forget to speak positively! Stop yourself from getting caught up in any negative trash talk, gossip and judgement…about other kids and teachers. A good year starts with good thoughts.
Be true to who you are. Leave the masks, facades, bravado at home and let your classmates and colleagues know the real you, right from the beginning.
