Handling Back to School Stress

Cristie talks about how to tackle the transition back to school in this time full of uncertainty and added stress. How can you manage your kids’ mental health? How can you manage your own? This is some of the stuff that is addressed during today’s conversation.

The quote about suffering is indeed not Viktor Frankl. According to Goodreads, it is actually Haruki Murakami, from What I Talk About When I Talk About Running.

This makes Cristie exceedingly happy because talking about the choice of suffering in the context of running resonates hard with her!

Here is some of what we cover this episode:

  • Control all that you can control
  • Tune in to your own feelings
  • Grieve the losses while creating new rituals and memories
  • Don’t postpone your life-live it as it’s given

Cristie talks about other courses she’s offering for establishing structure and schedules. Follow her over on the website ReinventionFamily.com to learn more about parent coaching courses and groups as they are released.
