Podcast 24 “Transitions”


Do you ever get weary?
Bible Passage: Galatians 6:9, Matthew 11:28


Who is God as we raise our children?



  • The One who calls us

  • The One who equips us.

  • The One who cares.

  • The One who invites us to lean on Him.


Remember:



  • God is the Answer.

  • He is sufficient.

  • Our Savior is the Resource.

  • He deeply cares.

Transitions


What we have learned through the raising of our four children is that communication is key for just about everything in life. So, the question is: how practically can we hep up the communication to alleviate the stress on both the child and us, as parents, with regard to transitions?


Three Points of Contact:


 



  1. Preparation

  2. Heat of the Moment

  3. Moving Forward


 


Preparation – what can we put into place ahead of time to help our children with their transitions?


In the Heat of the Moment – what can we do during the resistance and/or meltdowns?


Moving Forward – what can we do to help our children learn how best to move forward


Practical Helps:


 



  • Visual charts

  • Auditory input

  • Role playing

  • Toys as props

  • Teaching

  • Books from the Library

  • Social stories

  • Relieving sensory stress
