Psychologist’s Corner

kim-gettyThis time of year can be a really busy time for many, but once the hustle and bustle slows down, the upcoming winter break is a great opportunity for families to reconnect. Which is a great thing, because much research has shown that quality time spent with family has a significant positive impact on children’s academic success and emotional well-being. And “quality time” doesn’t have to be special meals at restaurants, vacations, or spending money – the things we do every day can serve as quality time, things like reading together, eating meals together, or simply talking with each other. Click here for some great tips on ways to incorporate more quality time into your family’s daily routine.

I hope everyone has an opportunity to unwind and spend some quality time with family over the winter break. See you next year!
