Creating Routines With Children and Teens
When things become unpredictable in our lives, adults and children alike experience a desire to have more control and autonomy. For children, their brains are still rapidly developing, and they lack the years of experience that adults have to weather times of change. Children and teens are being dramatically impacted during this global pandemic, and at Austin Family Counseling (and in our own homes) we are noticing increased worry, anxiety, withdrawal, acting out behavior, and more clues that children need extra support.
One strategy parents and caregivers can teach is the practice of creating routines. Side note: I’m a BIG FAN of routines, and have actually made a routine out of Back to School Routines (see my blog from 2014 when my kids were 4 and 2 – now they are 10 and 8! https://austinfamilycounseling.com/back-school-morning-hustle/)
Join me for a live, virtual, 2-hour workshop where we will dive into the nuts and bolts of creating routines with your kids!
- Learn easy, fun, and practical ways to use routines with your children of all ages.
- Identify key times of the day or week that feel chaotic or are often high conflict in your home during which routines might come in handy.
- Gain clarity around the short and long term benefits of using routines as a tool in your parenting tool belt, including fostering independence, organization, and responsibility for self and others.
