Back to school means school clothes shopping, school supplies, lots of excitement and maybe a little anxiety--and I'm not just talking about the kids! Sending our kiddos back to school can be a daunting tasks for parents.
Especially significant are the worries we have for our children's hearts. Will they click with the right social group? Will they be bullied, find themselves alone at lunch or recess, will they be able to keep up with the academic standards?
I want to share with you an activity that we have done several times throughout our kids' school years. I have to admit that I can't take any credit for this idea. It was inspired from a portion of Focus on the Family's book The Spiritual Growth of Children.
