Sometimes we get frustrated with our children and might end up in a power struggle. When that happens, it's okay to walk out of the room to cool down or to "take your sail out of their wind." It helps you get your mind back in gear and to focus. Just remember to apologize and this sentence can help when you are apologizing to your children.

Help your teen thrive during the holiday season

🎄Check out these tips from to help your teen thrive during the holiday season.

The holidays are filled with expectations. As parents, you want to make it magical and you want them to be happy, and at the same time, you want family connectedness.

Have a sit-down chat with your teens and ask them what they want to do, and do your best to make it happen, and be OK if they want to sit out some of the activities you have planned.

Lower expectations.
Show them love no matter what.
Omit your own grumpy attitude.

When a baby cries, they are trying to communicate with you, even if they are "fake" cries. Make sure to figure out what each cry means and don't ignore them. Picking up a child when they are crying helps them learn to either self sooth or associate you with being calm.

This time of year, when it feels like the sun sets right after lunch 😳, can feel extra stressful for everyone.

Grounding techniques help us focus on the present - we deal with what’s in front of us, in our zone of control, right this second. It’s a way to shift our energy to regulate our nervous systems.

There are different ways to ground yourself:

✅ visualization
✅ movement
✅ thinking about your surroundings and your supports

It takes practice to get into the habit of using grounding techniques. I recommend practicing every morning and every night…when stress does spike, you’ll know just what to do.

ElkoFRC,
It was a pleasure to be a part of the monologues this evening! With such a serious message, its a difficult job to bring it to an open forum and educate the community. I hope I was able to do that for you and advocate for what you do everyday!
Kindest regards,

Had lots of fun at the Puppy Walk! Great job everyone! My four goldens had a great time and now they are home and sound asleep!
We have been so busy serving our practice members we almost forgot to update our food drive tally. The community of ILC generously donated close to 300 items which were donated to Ruby Mountain Resource Center, Family Resource Centers of Northeastern Nevada and Community in Schools partnership program. Thank you all for you wonderful support and donations to a great cause!
