Let's begin with the end in mind
It made me realize that as adults, sometimes we do enough worrying for both ourselves AND our children combined! I have spent hours worrying about how he will do and if he would be ok. Honestly, he is resilient and flexible (at least for this….now ask him about wearing shoes other than flip flops, then you will a stubborn, upset five year old!), and he will be ok. We have a new normal but it is up to us to set the tone and mindset for our children so that they can start and remain positive through this year.
