August Tip of the Month from FOCUS (Families Over Coming Under Stress):


Welcome to the month of August! Changes are just around the corner with school starting soon. Students are starting in all new classes with new teachers, and maybe even new schools! All of this change can bring all kinds of different emotions to a family. Parents and children can feel anxious, excited, worried, nervous, and stressed in anticipation of the upcoming school year, which can disrupt daily routines and communication in the family. The FOCUS program teaches families how to manage their emotions during stressful times like these so that they can communicate effectively with one another! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn these skills from the FOCUS program so your family can have a smooth transition to the new school year… Don’t just get by, get stronger!
