All the "unknowns" that come with a new school year can cause anxiety for parents and students alike. Whatever school situation or stage you may find you and your child in, here's some tips to help navigate those things.

With two sons in college, I've been finding myself in need of a good dose of courage. So I asked Stacey Stone of 'Afternoons with Johnny & Stacey' to put on her counselor hat for a bit to help talk us through this. Stacey has a Masters Degree in Professional Counseling and is an LGPC in the state of MD with a private practice. 

She shares some tips on how to help our kids succeed (even while distance learning), how a Pomodoro Timer can help motivate your child to get started on that project, techniques for managing normal anxiety, and a special Bonus at the end detailing some of the Red Flags parents can be on the lookout for in regards to our children's mental health.  
I know this mom is breathing a lot easier already. I hope this will encourage you and your family too! Check out the whole interview below, including the Bonus segment, which is part of the last three to five minutes of this bigger interview.
