The holidays are over and we’re all slowly getting back into our routines. Everyone had a break, or at least a mini-break, and will be adjusting to a return to normalcy, or trying to. In this issue there is an interesting article about the mid-year blues we all experience, especially our children. That said, it’s really important that parents continue to create the atmosphere and expectation for their kids’ personal achievements, in spite of these blues.
Staying healthy is a big part of the equation and we typically present good ideas and plans for healthy eating and daily living that will accomplish just that. This issue is no exception. Eating winter vegetables (eating whites) is such a helpful topic, and as she does every month, our contributing nutritionist Christine Columbo has shared ideas for keeping our kids nutritionally balanced.
We’re heading into Catholic School’s Week, and with that in mind, we once again present a special advertising section highlighting many of the schools and their upcoming Open Houses. We’ve been doing this for many years, and moving forward we’ll be showcasing other specialized schools, whether religiously affiliated or not. Again, all of this is motivated by our strong attempt to be as helpful as possible and letting you, our readers, know what options are out there for your kids.
So Happy New Year to all! It’s the 21st year of our publishing these parent guides and we are looking forward to yet another year of being, both in print and online, an integral source of information and support to parents across our city. Wishing all of you a great year!
Thanks for reading.
