About This Workshop

Many of us feel relieved as the school year ends. We look forward to a more relaxed season, at last. And yet…by mid-July, we may be dealing with bored kids who are less cooperative and spending more time on screens than ever. And really, how we spend our summer as a family will impact our children’s readiness for September.

This session will give you an opportunity to think together with Peace At Home teachers and other parents about your summer. Let’s create a mindful and enjoyable season that will strengthen your kids’ optimism and resilience for next school year.
