Your Compass MONTHLY
GOODBYE FOR NOW
FROM THE DESK OF Ty Wilson
As the year blows past us, I look around and notice how fast time is moving with my children. They are growing up so fast. It makes me think: Looking back, am I going to be happy with the quality time I spent with them? Did I help shape who they will become? It is not recognition I am looking for but maybe comfort in knowing I made a difference in their lives, in helping them become the best people they can be for our future generations. Perhaps it is a silly thought. Everyone is doing the best they can. This is something I say to myself when I have a frustrating moment with a particular individual. I think, they do not mean to be difficult. They are doing the best they can and are not intentionally trying to make my day this challenging. I usually smile and realize, this too, shall pass. Thought for the month:
HELPING YOUR CHILD SET OUT ON THEIR OWN
As the summer comes to an end, you may be preparing to send your child off to college for the first time. While this may be an exciting time for your child, saying goodbye to the life they shared with you at home can be difficult. They will soon be entering a new routine that includes feeding themselves, managing their own schedule, and doing chores unprompted — all without any help from Mom and Dad. No transition is perfect, but this change doesn’t have to be a disaster. Whether your child is moving into a dorm, campus housing, or their first apartment, there are a few things you can do to make this transition as painless as possible. Having a tangible list you can check off in preparation for this big shift can help everyone involved feel more prepared. There are the obvious things kids need when they move out, like dishes, silverware, or a lamp, but pay attention to the areas that might get overlooked. If your child will be living on campus, check out the bathroom situation and make sure they won’t find themselves without a shower curtain on the first day of class. If they’re living in their own apartment, it’s a good idea to equip them with a small toolkit and a pair of jumper cables for their car. Other overlooked essentials include: Pack the essentials.
Have a great month. School is starting back, so be careful — children are out.
