Parenting With Playdate Planet – Making the Back to School Transition

Is your child anxious about starting a new school year? Are you? The back to school time is a challenging transition period for everyone involved, and the important subject of this week’s show. My return guest, author and educator, Rick Ackerly, and I talk about how we can partner with our child and the school to make this transition a positive learning experience for all involved. If you’re a parent, you either are in the midst of getting ready for your child to begin school, or you will be down the road, so make sure to tune in !
