Student Support Starts With Parent Self-Care
Updated: Aug 28
Wendy Williams with Williams Educational Consultants had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Jeannine Jannot author of The Disintegrating Student: Super Smart & Falling Apart about how parents can help with students in this virtual learning environment. Here are a few tips that Jannine shared with me today.
* Regulate our (parents) emotions FIRST
* Identify what we can control.
* Practice Self-Care.
* Be Flexible.
* Avoid Problem-Solving
In summary, Jeannine suggests parents "to practice being more tolerant with our short-term discomfort in order to foster our children’s long-term growth."
