‘Tapping’ to Reduce Stress

 

By Kevin Kunkel

Focus on Yourself For an Even Healthier Child!

 

By, David Laramie, PhD

Last week I bumped into a friend, and we started discussing the start of the school year.  The mother of toddlers, she was a bundle of energy as she rushed through a litany of her concerns about getting her children settled into school.  Without even pausing for a breath, she then began to express her fears about how her child would do in a different school next year.  It was a bit overwhelming for me at the time, ...
