Are your pre-teen or teenage children overwhelmed with online school?
Are they stressed and anxious but don’t know how to cope?
Our educational system as we know it has completely changed. All of the sudden, students who are normally quite independent in their learning are doing worse in their classes than they have ever done. Oftentimes they are too overwhelmed to understand their situation, and they might not know what overwhelm feels like to them, or how to cope with it. They might be lashing out at their families, their parents, or the adults who raise them, or displaying signs of apathy or depression.
The adults, who are also overwhelmed with having to be teachers and taskmasters as well as their ever-unfinished role as parents, don’t know how to help their children manage their schoolwork. This can be because adolescents rarely listen to the sage advice given by the adults who raise them (they’re basically hardwired for this). It could also be a combination of this and that the adults don’t understand the multi-layer, multi-step process of each program or website for each class that their kids have to access. My brain is exploding just thinking about it.
I’m offering help for students so that they can identify their overwhelm and reduce their stress and anxiety through academic organization, meditation, and visualization, so they can get through what they need to get through in order to be successful for the rest of the school year.
