COURAGE IN UNCERTAINTY
During a moment in our nation defined by the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the aftermath of the attack on the Capitol, we pause to reflect on the meaning of courage in our community.
In the words of MLK, pictured above at play with his family, "Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles."
As anxiety and uncertainty continue to swirl for many, we attempt to do just that—go forward in community and turn to playful learning to help process obstacles.

COLLAGE WITH COURAGE
What does courage mean to you? What does it look like, feel like, and sound like?  

This week, invite your child to leaf through magazines and newspapers for words and images that represent courage to them.

Your child might...
• Cut out their findings
• Arrange them on paper
• Anchor with glue or tape
• Hang their courageous collage!

TALKING WITH CHILDREN 
In the words of Fred Rogers, “In times of stress, the best thing we can do for our children (and for each other) is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
