Remote learning has had its high and lows in my house. There has been frustrations, and bright spots. I’m going with the flow as best as possible, practicing my own coping strategies to homeschool without the power struggles, and work from home and help with studies, and take care of myself so I can have energy and not lose it on my kids.
It hasn’t been easy, how about you? I would love to hear from you how you are really feeling?

Anxiety and Stress can make you feel like a big wave out of nowhere attacked you and you are drowning in it. For many of us, Anxiety has always been with us, like a shadow at our back, jumping out to scare us and block our way in life.
❤️Raising kids with anxiety can be very exhausting to parents. The most recent research suggests that at least 40% of teens are struggling seriously with anxiety and depression.
👉Kids need to feel safe, it is what allows them to feel calm, what leads to the development of resilience and emotional self-regulation. However, it is very hard as a parent to not feel the stress, get swept up in our children’s emotional storm and exhaust themselves by trying to keep them away from pain or take it away. Unfortunately, this is what feeds anxiety and makes it increase in our kids.
👉The energy and time parents dealing with stress, leaves little time and energy to take care of their emotional health. Only to find themselves yelling and fighting more with their kids…and all the mom guilt and shame that comes afterwards.
👉What if I told you their was a different way to live and help your kids with stress & anxiety without feeling the exhaustion?
👉Self-care is critical, and I don’t mean just do yoga, breathing techniques…although these are great but their are other simple and effective “inner work” of getting proactive in preparing to manage our moods and behavior to have the energy it takes and needed to take care of our loved ones. I’m excited to share these strategies with you Wednesday September 16th. WHY…Because

Sadly, research shows that those most . are teens & young adults who are experiencing historic levels of anxiety (this new study from the American Psychological Association found the most afflicted are 18-26 years old).
