Summer: A Time to Prioritize Our Wellbeing
Summer time is upon us and the race to find ways to keep our children busy this summer break has been well underway. In fact, during a recent chat with some parents, I realized that parents were feeling stressed about how to fill up their children’s upcoming free time. I heard a variety of concerns, like coordinating drop-off and pick-up, cost and distance of activities, coordinating with planned and unplanned vacations, co-parenting on a different schedule, avoiding learning loss, making sure summer isn’t spent on devices and children’s overall wellbeing. While summer break can be a great time to unwind and recharge, it can still present its own challenges, and our children’s mental health and our own are important to keep in mind as we ease into summer.
Below are some tips and resources that might help your child and family manage mental health and prioritize wellness this summer.
LIBRARY CORNER – ANNOUNCEMENTS
ROZANNA BARANETS, SPMS LIBRARIAN
Birdie Sitter for parts of Summer Break
Looking for a loving indoor home for the library’s finches – Juju, Kewpie and Mango. Must be able to keep them for July and/or August (until school starts) or large portions thereof.
Finches have a soft, unassuming little “cheep” and are extremely easy to take care of. They are not loud, screechy birds.
They come with an overnight bag of food and other goodies, and just need water changed every other day.
If you are interested, please email Ms. Baranets at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you Library Volunteers!
