Dear <<First Name>>,

The back-to-school excitement is here! A new school year means making new friends and facing new challenges. Here are some tips that will prepare you for all the smiles, adventures and challenges that come with school. 

I've included some must-have rules that you might be tempted to bend (but shouldn't) as well as some special tips for knowing how to help overweight children and friends.  

Don't miss out on upcoming play therapy conferences, either! I can't wait to connect with you soon.

Clair Mellenthin, LCSW, RPT-S

Children who are overweight often dread the beginning of a new school year because of bullies and self-confidence issues. Follow the 5 tips and:
  • Recognize a weight problem
  • Know how to address it constructively
  • Teach your kids what to say to classmates who are overweight
Getting back into a routine can be chaotic! Especially with lots of other pressures and perspectives from friends at school, you can expect to get some push-back from your kids. While you may have to pick your battles, there are some rules you should never bend. 

Read these 4 tips now and thank yourself later!
