How to prepare kids for goodbye at the end of a visit!
My kids love having family come visit. The excitement leading up to their arrival and the anticipation of all the fun to be had is one of the best parts of the visit. We always plan special outings and get-togethers and the calendar of the visit is usually full to the brim. When it comes time to leave…the kids (and grown ups) are disappointed, deflated, and usually not ready for the departure.
Favorite guest post writer, Babs Bell Hajdusiewicz shares her thoughts and strategies on how to best prepare little ones for the day company leaves to go home in this month’s featured post. As a grandma (a best-selling children’s author, career educator, and longtime consultant for schools, parents, and writers) Babs has both personal and professional insight on how to manage what can be a really difficult good bye.
Do your kids struggle with saying goodbye at the end of a visit? How do you plan for that tough last day?
