With all that has happened in the Capitol this week and other events across our nation, it is a good reminder to talk with your children about these events. Child Psychologists suggest that parents have open and honest conversations with children about what is happening and why, including acknowledging that a child is scared and anxious. You can use this as a teachable moment and help your child learn to name what they are feeling. It can also help to list some of the things done to keep a child safe and give them space to ask questions. Over the last year, we have endured so many unprecedented challenges events. It has been overwhelming. Together we have worked to be a Caring Community with integrity, equity, empathy, and respect. I would like to thank our Coyote families for their support during these challenging and tumultuous times. By working together in our community, we can help all our children to achieve.
