Welcome to Term 2! A very different term for us all I know, but one we will never forget, I am sure!
I wanted to take some time to say hello, to let you know that we are all thinking of you and your families and to encourage you in this really unique season. It’s important to remember that all seasons change or come to an end. Rather than just thinking about it coming to end, let’s think about how we can make it count – make it a time full of great memories. Memories that you can treasure forever and that your children can reminisce on as a great adventure that they share with their children in years to come. I think one of the best ways we can do this is to focus on each day as it comes, not thinking about the failures of yesterday or the anxieties of tomorrow but what treasures are waiting in our day today.
There is a beautiful reminder of this principle in the bible in Matthew 6:34, where it says,
“Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”
Here are few things you can do to focus on today that will go towards creating great memories for you and your children in the years to come.
Parenting expert Michelle Mitchell and Psychologist Karen Young have some wonderful insights and encouragement on how to manage your energy levels and connect with your children emotionally each day for better learning.
Here are a couple of great resources:
