We know about Early Childhood, Tweens and Teens but what is that time between Early Childhood and Tweens all about?
We discuss that school aged time I call Midhood that starts at aged 5 and goes through to about 12.
Today I want to talk about the importance of the school age years and how this overlooked time really is a missed opportunity for family growth, family culture and family connectedness. I want to show you how to change this so you continue to build on all that Early Childhood wiseness you’ve already got going on.
This episode is all about the life and times of a school aged parent. We going to map out the school age time and establish some milestones. These markers help us pause and evaluate and check we’re going the direction we really want for our family. At the end of the episode I’ll share a planning freebie that’ll help you start the school age journey with purpose, calm and unhurried.
