Supporting Healthy Coping Skills in Children

We all get upset or angry every once in a while, and children are exactly the same. WE have to TEACH our children how to respond to those feelings in a SAFE way!

To get ideas on how to help your child cope with his/her feelings, check out the info about coping skills under the Resources icon on the left of this page.

Letter Learning

At-Home Activity: Snowman

News 6 days ago Help your child decorate his/her snowman.  Remember:  it is your child's job to do most of the work, and messy, crooked decorations are great!  Have your child tell a story about the snowman and write it down.  Send both back to school!
