My school district has a very transient population - students move between our schools, to other local districts, out of state, and back again. For some children and families, they find a way to make the moves part of their routine. For others, every relocation evokes feelings of fear and resentment.
Regardless of your school district, you will always have students who move in and out of your building. This transition can be difficult, but hey, that's what school counselors are for, right? The problem is, it can be hard to cram every strategy into a phone call with the parent or in a session with the student. Sometimes, we need to offer extra resources for the family that they can absorb in their own time.
Moving is a huge change - you are truly uprooting your life and trying to grow in new soil. If not tended properly, parts of your life may begin to wilt. There may be unexpected hurdles, weeds that threaten to grab hold of you, but with the right support and a little sunlight, you can bloom and flourish again. This book is that sunlight.
