Setting Boundaries with Love, Patience, and Understanding During Transition and Beyond

April 21, 2023, Noon EST


Children value and appreciate structure and when we move they need it more than usual. Unfortunately, during transition is the time when most parents let go of all structure. Sometimes the intention is well meaning. Parents want to be flexible and understanding when everything’s up on the air. We know it can be difficult to find the balance between setting boundaries and being flexible as things change! In this talk, therapists from Virginia Family Therapy, will offer some tips and ideas for keeping structure, even when it’s tempting to just let it go.

Learning Objectives:

     Learn ideas for creating routines that can easily go with you, even during PCS.

     Learn where you can create flexibility - even for the less “negotiable” things like bath time, bedtime, and meals.

     Get ideas for how to get back on track when routines get lost.
