If you have been near a TV during the news broadcasts these past few weeks, I am sure you are beginning to tense a bit when you hear the lead stories announcing the topic of Swine Flu. The beginning of the new school year is always a point of transition and heighten energy in household with students, but this year the energy is a bit higher with the possibility of a flu that is pandemic. I am suggesting we take a moment to look at our character strengths and think about how they can be applied in this situation.
If you are unfamiliar with the concept of character strengths, this moment is a great time to find out how to use your best, most comfortable self in challenges. Kids and other will want assurance and guidance, so lets do this right.
