    Aaaand My Child's School Went Online Again 😮

    Aaaand My Child's School Went Online Again 😮

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,
    I had another topic scheduled for today, but with my clients, friends, and colleagues struggling with figuring out their fall season this year due to school changes, I sat down in front of the mic to share some unscripted thoughts with you. Forgive the rabbit trails. 🐰
    My friend, please know that while the next few months look like a hot mess, you can handle it.
    Here are some thoughts to try on. Adjust as needed. 💚
    "This isn't what we planned at all, but we will figure out how to make it work, and I'll be patient with myself as I navigate the journey forward." "This isn't what we planned. I'm not sure what the future looks like, but I can figure out my next best step at this moment - even if it is to stare at the wall to calm my brain." Let's be real. Sometimes this is needed.
    "Online again: Well, I know what didn't work last time around. How can I change those areas?" "Online again: I can adapt in ways that I couldn't imagine a year ago. This won't look the way I had planned, and that's okay."
    🗨  "Be there for your children. All of the thoughts and anxiety that  you have (about our current situation) they feel that - and they have their own. So I encourage you to get to know them no matter their age - what's going on in their mind?"

    How to Help Your College Student Prepare for A Different Campus Part 2 of 2 featuring Dr. Jill Grimes MD

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,
    If your child is scheduled to head back to campus in four to six weeks, you may have questions about how to best prepare for campus during COVID.
    In this episode, I have great fun chatting with Dr. Jill about this topic. We talk about forms, checklists, favorite chapters of her new book, and so much more!
    Her book, The Ultimate College Student Health Handbook, Your Guide for Everything from Hangovers to Homesickness, is the perfect reference book for both you and your child. I give it my five happy chick rating, and I invite you to listen to the full episode.

    How to Help Your College Student Prepare for A Different Campus Part 1 of 2

    How to Help Your College Student Prepare for A Different Campus Part 1 of 2

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,
    Fall 2020: some of our children's schools have plans for an on-campus return, and the campus won't be the campus our child(ren) left or visited. Life is different, and campus life will be no exception.
    While our daughter is scheduled to head back to college in less than six weeks, that may or may not come to fruition. 2020 has a sneaky way of showing us that plans are rarely concrete. In the meantime, the best thing our family can do is prep for a return to campus with the knowledge we have now. In this episode, I share some things we are doing to prepare for an on-campus semester.

    🗨  "If your child doesn't already have a thermometer and a first aid kit - it is time to round one up for the fall!”

Coffee with a friend

I always enjoy listening to Christine’s podcasts. She’s down to earth, relatable and full of practical suggestions. Every topic is well thought out and provides some actionable steps for any mom trying to be the best they can. When she has a guest interview, it’s a real conversation and Christine gives the guest ample time to provide their expertise. If you’re an empty nest mom, like me, I recommend becoming a regular listener.
