It’s time to finally wrap up and put a bow around the 12 habits of Wise families! Although it was only 12 habits, it appears that it has taken me twice as long to share them with you as intended! I think we were supposed to wrap up back in April! Well, as my 15-year-old would say, “YOLO!” Just doing the best I can!
We have gotten hundreds of comments from all of you by email, snail mail and social media sharing your Wise family habits – and providing us with countless giggles and food-for-thought along the way. We LOVE your feedback and we’ll keep working to make sure we are learning right along with you!
We’ve been busy in The Wise Family digs with writing, mapping, funneling and growing – we hope you have been too (well, maybe not funneling but, hey, whatever). Let’s pull together the 12 habits for review:
There you have it! There are tons of blogs, books and bitches that judge your parenting! Take what works and toss the rest!
What would happen in your family if you made a commitment to practice just one habit that you need to work on this summer? Share your thoughts in the comments below or visit us in the social stratosphere! Remember, YOLO!
“Oh my gosh, my daughter just thinks Grace is amazing and I am so glad that she has someone to talk to that isn’t me! She is so happy after her sessions! Thank you.”— Mom of 15 year old client
“Supporting the mental health of the kids and teens in our community is one of the most challenging and also one of the most important jobs anyone could have. And I see your team doing it with both skill and enthusiasm.Our family could not be more fortunate to have found your practice 3 years ago.
Our kids are growing up but we still keep your number on our phone and we know we can reach out to your team if we need it. We tell everyone who asks about the WISE people at The Wise Family.
Thank you for doing what you do for so many people.”—from the parent of two former clients (siblings)— Parent of two former clients (siblings)
“Dr. Amy knows how to relate to children and make them feel comfortable. My son was shy in the beginning but Amy asked him a couple of questions about what he likes and immediately found a connection with him. He happily followed her into the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and performed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s because of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!”— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
“I went home and practiced what Dr. Amy taught me…and it worked!”— 8-year-old coaching client
