WRFN Family Pulse - September 2018

Just like, that the summer is over! Once again, here we are transitioning back into the school year. In this edition of Family Pulse we thought it would be useful to share a quick list of tricks and tools to use during the transition.


Back to school is a very busy time, during which parents need to remember to look after themselves. The reality is, transition time is a difficult time for parents. Getting to know and deal with new situations isn't just difficult for children, it's difficult for caregivers too. We hope you’ll find our tips useful for your own self-care during the upcoming transition time.


Don’t forget to check out What’s Happening at WRFN and Upcoming Community Events—there’s lots going on!

Have a wonderful month and remember to take care of yourself!
