Well, we are entering the last month of the year and have truly experienced the best of times and the worst of times. After a year filled with health, economic and political uncertainties, many of us are ready to embrace a new year! As we enter a month that is traditionally focused on family festivity, we are aware of and sensitive to the loss, anxiety, and loneliness that some people are experiencing. Please see this month's articles that address the mental health of young children, teens, and adults. Because the number of Covid 19 cases are rising, we will continue to keep our families safe. I encourage you to create new and safer family traditions this year. Please see the suggestions on fun, low or no cost activities that you can do with your children to create long lasting happy memories. Happy Holidays and a Happy, Healthy New Year to you and your family!
