Feeling all the Feels: Sending My Girl to Kindergarten

I don’t know how it happened. It’s cliche but it’s true. It seems like yesterday the nurse placed her in my arms for the first time and boom – I was a mom. Now here we are, nearly five years later, and we are getting ready to send this bright eyed little girl who loves to change her clothes 18748324 times per day to a school, all day, with a uniform. We are taking this tiny being, who just yesterday it seems was a squishy newborn and pushing her out into the real world.

I have all sorts of doubts about this. I’m nervous. I’m excited. I’m worried. I’m scared. Is the world ready for this fierce little girl with a sassy attitude? Is she ready to stand up for herself when people tell her she can’t? Am I ready to take a step back – to let her follow her own path, be her own person, and let her out of this bubble I have created for her?

A School Psychologist’s Role in Helping Your Child

It’s that time of year again. That time when camps end, pools are closed, and our kids squeeze their sun-kissed skin into new shirts and jeans, pack up their fresh school supplies into crisp, unstained (as of yet) book bags, and we as parents lament (or rejoice) the beginning of a new school year.

For some kids, the beginning of school is exciting – a time to rejoin with old friends and make new ones, and continue their progress in their own coming-of-age stories. For some kids, however, (and parents too) the start of school is an anxiety-producing event. This can be especially true when your child struggles.

Schools are set up with a system of supports designed to help those children who struggle. Among those supports is a School Psychologist. However, even with supports in place, many parents are still very much in the dark as to what they can do to access available resources. Here’s a quick run-down on one resource parents can tap into today: your friendly neighborhood School Psychologist.
