Today, our post had a social worker speak about raising resilient children. One of her points was that family rituals help create structure for children, especially during times of upheaval. I thought about my family's main rituals: Friday afternoon cookies and Friday night pizza. (The rest are about food, too, if you are seeing a connection.) My kids seem to enjoy the regularity of those two things, things we are able to do even during a move, while traveling, or while Dad is deployed.
What rituals has your family created? I would love to add to our collection!
