Hi everyone. It's Yvonne Heath from Love Your Life to Death.
I am back in the Hunter's Bay Radio Studio with my friend stuck behind the plexiglass. Do you see him back there? Nico Byl. We are being very safe. He even walked in with his very cool mask.
Nico is the guidance counselor at the Huntsville High School
(and the the everything guy). You're the helping the students in
many ways. Guidance counselor is a part of it and then there's lots
more stuff too. Yes, there is. So we've been talking about this
challenging time. Let's just talk about the fact that the kids are going back to school This is challenging for parents, teachers, students, everyone. We're in this together and we need to support each other
as much as possible. So Nico, and I had a great chat, and we're going
to chat again. So Nico, what do you feel is (in a minute or less)
something we can share with everyone how to best
support each other through this?
I think to be honest about what's happening, look for opportunities in both the positives and negatives and ask yourself as we were chatting about, how can you use that? If today wasn't great, be honest about it, talk about it, look it in the eye and and use it for something tomorrow.
Absolutely. And you know, as I always say we always have a choice.
We don't always have the choice we wish we had. It's okay. Nobody
would choose this right now. We would not choose this right now. And if we can acknowledge and allow that it is challenging, allow our feelings and now what. Now how can we make this better we are in this together!
I just want to say to every staff person at any school anywhere I am sending you so much love. Please be very intentional with your self care. Parents support one another through this and students too.
We will get through this. We appreciate that. Thank you.
Thanks everyone. Listen to the show below:
