We know transitioning back to school after a 3-month break can be tough for both children and parents. For some children, anticipating a new grade, a new classroom, a new teacher, making friends, facing bullies, feeling “uncool” or coping with academic pressures can fuel anxiety, even dread. This anxiety may be experienced through such symptoms as headaches, stomachaches, sleep difficulties, and even school refusal.

Back 2 School will help parents understand how to help their anxious child transition back to school. We will discuss the "morning routine," what to do if your child refuses school, and many other challenges that your child may have with returning to school. Parents will also have an opportunity to ask “What do I do when….” questions.

On October 19, 2019, we’re running the Kansas City Marathon with Team Heartland of World Vision to help provide clean water to children in Africa. Whether it's raising money for children who have to walk 3.5 miles every day to get clean water or running the 26.2 miles Full Marathon, we’ll be emotionally and physically tested through this experience.
