This week at CatholicMom.com, I recount a story about Christopher. The stressors of his world ... his school work, his piano lessons, his home work, and the changes that are part-and-parcel of the end of the year... were creating a short fuse.
This post is short and sweet, because I'd like to open it to you, my readers. Have you ever been through a particularly stressful time with your grade schooler, and what did you do to help him or her through it?
Also, if your child has been taking music lessons, what do you do to help your child get practice time in -- and balance his other responsibilities at the same time?
Any and all advice welcome!
