These activities foster creativity, discussions, imagination and growth. Your family will get to know each other better — and learn a few interesting skills along the way!
Children are looking for something fun post-COVID. They’ve recently experienced anxiety, missing friends, traveling, etc. Unknowingly, they may act out feelings of frustration, resentment and depression, but parents can get ahead of these natural feelings before they rear themselves in the forms of defiance or self-isolation.
Respectful Ways is an innovative online youth program that teaches character building and social-emotional learning. RW offers a series of listen, play and learn activities to help families recognize and navigate through potential negative feelings and understand their origins.
Words in blue point to fun online resources related to the activities.
