Do your children know your phone number?
With the proliferation of smart phones, all of us have increasingly come to rely on our devices to “remember” phone numbers and other contact information for us. However, it is still a good safety practice to ensure your children know “by heart” a phone number to use contact you in case of emergency. Kids can remember and store a number as early as Kindergarten. Please take some time this month to see if your children have your phone number memorized; if they don’t, now is a good time to help them learn it.
In February, our Mindfulness instruction and practice continues at Northwood, and our Focus Character Trait for the month is Gratitude. Please see our Mindfulness webpage for the weekly Mindfulness challenges for February and for more information about supporting your children in practicing gratitude this month.
