Tip of the Week

Teens need to recharge. You do too.

Your teens need a break this summer to rebuild their resiliency; why don’t you follow that advice too, for yourself and all your family? Rather than trying to make up for lost time this summer, take time this summer to re-group and re-charge with a goal of a re-set in the fall.
