Updates

Hiiii.

I know, I know. I’ve been doing a horrible job of keeping this blog updated. Good thing no one actually comes here anymore. For the 3 to 5 people who choose to hang around, I’m sure you aren’t shocked. (Also, thank you.)

I do not promise to do better.

Since the last time I posted here, I’ve been back to ABC8 a couple times to offer a few tips for parents and caregivers. My October visit was to share tips about helping children with social anxiety. During my December visit, I offered a few tips for keeping kids engaged during the Winter break.

Most recently, I shared a few thoughts with Real Simple about getting children and adolescents involved in volunteering and community service to help them develop key social-emotional skills and a sense of community responsibility.

I have a few more updates, but it’s past my bedtime (and no one is reading this anyway), so I guess I’ll share those later…

ABC8 Good Morning Texas Segment: Simple Sensory Activities You Can Do At Home

Bennie and I returned to Good Morning Texas to give parents and caregivers ideas for super simple sensory activities to do at home with little ones. Check out the full segment here! 

During the third activity (the scented cloud dough), I forgot to mention that you can add the scent (duh)! We usually add a couple drops of lavender to ours. 

Oh, and enjoy the bonus Cha Cha Slide at the very end. If you blink, you’ll miss it!

The Party’s Just Getting Started

A while ago someone asked me something like, “If you could work in a profession other than school psychology, what would you be doing?”

My answer: Hands down, I’d be a comedian working on a sketch comedy show.

At the time, the idea seemed implausible. I was well into my 30s and too deep into my career. Fast forward to February 2020…
