Family Forum: Managing the Summer “Free For All”

May 18 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Family Forums are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, and are intended to be a time of education, constructive dialogue, and support. Occasionally, topics of particular interest may also be discussed during a lunch hour forum.

Managing the Summer “Free For All”

Summer is for so many families a chance to decompress, let go of the routine, and have some new adventures. We want to leave room for spontaneity, unplug the alarm clock, and have days where nothing’s on the calendar. That’s all totally normal! Parents of youth with trauma histories, though, may find that letting go of even a little bit of their routine leads to family chaos and more dysregulated behaviors.

It doesn’t have to be one or the other, though! Join us for a practical discussion about managing the summer “free for all,” and how to find a balance between the structure of the school year and entirely unstructured summer days.

All Recommended families will receive an email inviting them to register for upcoming Forums. If you are Recommended and have not received an email invitation, please contact us at iap@fireflyIN.org. If you are not Recommended with Indiana Adoption Program, but have recently adopted or are in the process of finalizing an adoption and would like to participate, please email your request to your local adoption consultant.
