August Tip of the Month from FOCUS (Families Over Coming Under Stress):

Hello Friends, and Happy August!    Have you seen all the “back to school” commercials yet?  It might feel like we just finished school, but it’s never too early to plan for getting back into the swing of the school year.  What kind of transitions or changes are the hardest for your children?  Perhaps their schedule has changed with new activities or more homework and they need a new routine?   At the FOCUS program, we teach families how to problem-solve and set goals, so your family can enjoy the end of summer, and head strong into the new school year!  Call the FOCUS program today for more information.  Don’t just get by, get prepared and be strong!
