Question from Member: How do you reduce yuck that’s related to a lot of change: move, baby, parents work, schedule, etc.
Reply from Rachel: It’s hard when these changes are things that can’t be prevented, isn’t? We see their impact and feel bad and sometimes even helpless.
2.) If possible, try to find time for some more lighthearted time. When life is stressful, simply making this type of deposit can be huge. Perhaps playing some board games or just having a “silly face” contest, or playing “Straight Faced Ace” (where everyone tries to make one person laugh). And remember, this is about quality, not quantity.
3.) Do try to touch base with the kids to ask what things are like for them. Kids can truly go through almost anything as long as they have an adult who is listening and loving them through it!
