When your children go off to college, they have to learn how to do things for and by themselves. They experience stress daily as they learn how the world works, without a parent directly by their side. Summer is a great time to teach your young adults good habits that will help reduce stress when they are busy at college. Learning how to cook healthy foods, exercise, and take care of their body are three major ways to reduce stress. If they know how to take care of themselves, college and life in general will be less stressful.
This summer grab your not so little kid and teach them how to make healthy, quick meals that they can make in college when they have little time. Cooking with your child will not only teach them new skills and recipes but cooking also allows for bonding and human connection. Cooking is the perfect opportunity to check in with your child about their lives and have a discussion, especially if your child is already in college. They now have their own stressful lives away from home, but it’s always good to check in or even work on your relationship with them. Other great ways for young adults to reduce stress is to go for a run, write their thoughts down in a journal, get a good night’s sleep, or do something they love.

“This is my 1st visit at WISE with my son. So far I am very thankful and impressed by the space. I feel light and comfortable here while my son works on his growth. I appreciate that you curated the process well.” ~ WISE Family parent— Thankful and impressed by the space
“Dr. Amy talks about moving children from being externally-driven to internally-driven…and she helps you get there!”— Parent of 15-year-old daughter
“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
