Unpacking the Backpack

You see your child leave for school with their backpack and the teachers see them walk into the building with one. But do you know what they bring to school each day? Yes, they carry their lunch, books, school supplies, and athletic gear but they also carry their fears, family struggles, mental health diagnosis, and more. What happens at home walks onto the bus, into the building, sits in the lunchroom, and enters the playing field. Today, we are going to unpack what our kids are carrying with them especially with the start of full in-person learning, and what we as parents/caregivers can do to help lighten their load.
