When kids are in a transition they're putting lots of invisible energy into the crossing they're making. They are feeling stretched and may be extra tired, stressed, anxious, or just distracted. This is not the time to teach them everything we wish we had taught them before the transition! It's time to be steady and loving, non-reactive and calm. We may need extra emotional support from our own community in order to really be present for our kids.

I'm a person on a messy journey--healing, learning, discovering and rediscovering. Sharing, writing, talking, and teaching help me to understand myself and the world more clearly. I hope it can help make your journey a easier, too.
