How to adapt to those family changes that could take place.
Nashville, Ark. – As I get ready to welcome my second grandchild, it makes me think
of change. Having a new baby in the family is super exciting, it also indicates things
will change. New routines and big sister will have to make some adjustments to having
a sibling. Change happens. Sometimes, change happens faster than you think. It could
be you are sending your last child off to Kindergarten or your first child off to
college. It may be that one of your children is getting married and moving away to
another town or state miles away, or you may be sending your first child off to college.
It could be the loss of a family member or family separation. Whatever the change,
you will have to adapt and sometimes that can be very difficult to do. Here are some
tips to help you adapt to change.
Remember, in order to change and accept it, you must keep a positive attitude,
increase communication, maintain rituals, take care of yourself and maintain a sense
of humor. If you have tried all these tips and find yourself still struggling, it
may be time to seek professional help.
For more information on family issues relating to stress management, contact
the Howard County Cooperative Extension Service, which is a part of the University
of Arkansas Research and Extension program. We have a couple of great booklets, “Managing Stress” and “Getting Your Heart Right” both which are free of charge.
