On today’s episode, we’ll be talking about Parenting School Age Children. Between the ages of 5 and 12, children expand their horizons and spend more time away from their parents. It can be tough to see your child go from baby to child – going to school, making friends, and learning more about the world. It’s an exciting time in your child’s development, but can also come with a multitude of stressors as both you and your child learn to navigate new systems, routines, and relationships, not to mention concerns about inclusion, bullying, violence, sex ed, and more. We are thrilled to have Dr. Eboni Lunsford Calbow join us for today's conversation and hopefully provide us with some tips and tricks on surviving the journey through the school years.
