Today is one of those days where my column might annoy you. I heartily welcome your eye roll.
Today I’m going to ask you to have conversation with your kids.
Summer time is a time to decompress, relax, spend time doing things because there is more free time. I’m not talking about school personnel; I’m talking about our youth.
I know it might not be easy and perhaps you haven’t done it in a while, but as long as they still live in your home, there’s always a chance to begin a dialogue.
As school is two and a half weeks away, perhaps start by asking them what kinds of things they think they might need. When kids are in the older grades, there’s not always a list of supplies to get you started.
When kids are younger, it is easy to take them to annual physicals, the dentist and other appointments to allow us to keep tabs on them, but that gets a little harder for some when as the years go by.
As kids become teens one of the best parts about the Children’s Clinic is that they have the parent step out and they ask youth some pretty important questions that may lead to some good conversation, too.
Big problems don’t start big; there are often signals, issues, or light bulbs that go on along the way.
