Picking up Students early

Please remember to write a note in your child’s agenda to inform their teacher if your child will be leaving the school day early.  If they attend the YMCA or any after school programs, please notify the appropriate personnel.  Make sure to discuss pick up time and location with your child in order to minimize any concerns.

St Joseph Tips

Who among us hasn’t caved in to our child’s pleading for candy or a toy, despite wanting to say no? It seems far easier to say “yes” all time, however saying “no” is an essential tool for your child’s health and well-being.  By saying No, you are teaching your child self-control, how to tolerate disappointment and frustration, delay gratification and build healthy self-esteem.  Make sure to turn a “No” into a teachable moment, where kids can learn to prioritize and deal with disappointment. Remember, you’re not a bad parent for saying No, in fact, you’re a good parent for giving your child(ren) healthy life strategies.  For more tips on how to say no tactfully and guilt-free, visit: http://www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/article/parent-child/its-okay-to-say-no, http://www.themotherco.com/2015/01/how-to-say-no-to-your-kids-and-why-theyll-thank-you-later/, https://experiencelife.com/article/saying-no-to-your-kids/
