Time with our children can be valuable in so many ways. Spending time
with your child individually can help improve behaviors and lead to
healthier, more confident kids. Often negative behaviors are associated
with a need for attention.
Finding time to give each child individual attention every week can be difficult. I encourage families not to get in over their heads. This time does not have to be spent doing anything elaborate. You can simply go to a fast food restaurant and grab a soda or play a video game together. This time should not be given as a reward or taken as a punishment. This should be time that your child can depend on having with you, whether things have been going well or not so well. Further, this time should always be a positive experience, and tends to work best if it is child driven.
As the school counselor at Point Elementary, my goal is to help every student be the best they can be; this includes working directly with students, as well as collaborating with families and staff. Please contact me if there’s anything I can do to help your child be more successful at school or in life!
