Ep 120 I Taming Transitions

Welcome to the Us And Kids Podcast!

We are talking today about how to create smooth transitions  - for our kiddos, and for our selves.  It's spring, moving into summer, and often those schedules around school, day care, social spaces and places create good times, and trying times.  Our kiddos often don't understand going to sleep when it's still light outside -and we forget to get them to bed on time, because it is light outside and it feels so good to relax into the evening.

But then, that price to pay, the next morning!

So, what are some clues and tricks for helping changes (not just around seasons or DLSavings time) be less challenging.

Working together, making good plans, and adjusting plans are important skills.  And when our kiddos ( or our spouse, and our self) are struggling to find the energy to make the mindset and behavior shift necessary, we can come next to them with grace and patience.

Because, of course, transitions take time and tenderness, and often a family team to make it happen.
