|GETTING BACK IN THE GROOVE|
|Preparing Your Kids for Back to School |
Clair Mellenthin, LCSW
Director of Child & Adolescent Services
Most of us parents
are finding ourselves in two different camps right now. The first camp is the "Holy cow! How did
summer fly by so quickly," group of parents who are in the rush of planning the
last hurrahs of summer before school starts again. The second camp is the "Can school start any
sooner please ?!?!" group and have had the paper chain that you used to use to
count down for Christmas hung up in your kitchen counting down the days for
school to start for the last month.
of which camp you find yourself in right now, the end of summer is upon us and
it is time to start thinking "How can I prepare my kids (and me) to get back in
the school mode?" after the long summer break of late nights and late sleeping
in schedules that happen during the summer for most of us. READ
Clair's tips for getting the back to school process going.

|The Art of Leaving Things Undone
Julie Hanks, LCSW
Owner & Clinical Director
Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is a nobler art of leaving things undone.
I'm the first to admit that that I have a lot on my plate and that I
like to get things done. However, I recently wrote a blog called "Confessions of a Multi-tasking Mama" about all of the things I don't
do - the things I leave undone. I received many emails and blog
comments from women expressing relief that they are not alone in leaving
things undone, and sharing their own candid "confessions" of what they
leave undone. WATCH
