September can be the worst month in a home with children. In the process of transitioning into a new school year, parents as well as children can be overwhelmed. With a change in schedules, new schools, new teachers, new expectations, and new friends, this time of year can really test a family’s coping skills.
According to a study conducted by the APA (American Psychology Association) in 2006, nearly half (47 percent) of Americans are concerned with the level of stress in their daily lives and those with children living at home were more likely to be concerned about stress than those without.
So if you’re stressed out, just imagine how your children feel! Feng Shui does not come with a magic fairy wand (unfortunately, there is no “Easy” button like the commercials), but there are some things you can do to make their spaces a safe haven that will provide support and nurturing during these challenging times.
Be sure to check that your front door entry (both inside and outside) is welcoming. Check that it’s free of clutter, well-lit and attractive. A welcoming entry allows opportunity to come in and reach all the members of the home, so this is the first step to ensure your children have the best chance for success.
