And moving from the relaxed pace of summer to the more demanding routines of school is probably one of the toughest transitions in your child’s year. Peace At Home founder and president, Ruth E. Freeman, LCSW will join with education specialist Andrea Brinnel, Ed.D., to think with you about practical strategies to support your whole family to start the school year with curiosity and optimism.
