Resilience and middle school children
🐞 Reinforce empathy and help your child keep perspective. If your child falls into the shifting of social groups that form in middle school, help them understand that other children may be feeling just as lonely and confused, and help them to see beyond the current situation.
🐞 Talk with your child about your own feelings during times of extraordinary stress. Your children may be old enough to appreciate hearing about your own thoughts and feelings, but also the ways in which you cope. Share how the ways you cope are helpful to you, but also find techniques that may benefit your child.

MORE INSIGHTS YOU MIGHT LIKELearn more by discovering other insights
I just got a sudden depression/anxiety attack recently, to point it got me thinking to myself: "why am I limiting myself for family?". That very question sparks my whole identity, as a son, a brother, and the boy who dreams big, but have to keep low profile.
My question to you: what made you feel you are free from shackles of family? How, and why?
Trends shift, and today, 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 lovers are more advantageous than ever as new finishes, textures and pieces of furniture emerge to satisfy our cravings.
𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 is timeless, just like white, but I find it cozier:
𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 Interiors aren't scary at all!
In fact, black, dark grey and grey colours have a healing and soothing effect on your eyes.👀
I can't stress enough how essential it is for a modern person stuck in front of a screen for 16h on a daily basis.
Besides, 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 interiors emphasize the great view you got behind your windows. If you have one, then probably this is exactly what you bought that house for with plenty of natural light to experiment with. That said, let you dark walls enframe that beautiful view.
To me, personally, 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐 stimulates imagination. Have you ever managed to get inspired while looking at the white piece of paper? All I see is emptiness... However, whenever I divert my eyes to black, I see depth, which takes me on the journey to explore, just as if it would be a voyage to space...
In fact, other colours look much brighter next to the dark background. But, remember, if there's no light, there's no black or white.
In addition, variety of different textures may create stunning effects, even if paired with single colour only, which, to me, would be simply
𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐, as I find it both dramatic and cosy at the same time!
And what about you, are you in favor or against
Could you tell apart 𝓘𝓽𝓪𝓵𝓲𝓪𝓷 interior from Contemporary or Modern?🤔
Probably not, although they look almost the same, except for those trivial details that make them what they are.
In fact, those details tell 𝓼𝓽𝓸𝓻𝓲𝓮𝓼 of how that style came to exist and if you can read one, by simply observing the space, - you can tell the style.
Let me tell you the story of an Italian one...
۩ First of all, imagine a big, friendly and welcoming Italian family with both - nuclear and extended - families living under the same roof.
The fisrt thing that springs to your mind is big 𝓼𝓹𝓪𝓬𝓮, our first main factor in this style, isn't it?
۩ Now, let's imagine their plentiful dinners.
They'll require 𝓱𝓾𝓰𝓮 𝓴𝓲𝓽𝓬𝓱𝓮𝓷𝓼 in light colours, in order to not burden the atmosphere, but a dark wooden table to emphasize the value of food.
۩ How about their cosy movie nights?
We'll need to add 𝓹𝓻𝓪𝓬𝓽𝓲𝓬𝓪𝓵 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓯𝓾𝓷𝓬𝓽𝓲𝓸𝓷𝓪𝓵 sofas to make everyone feel comfortable. By adding opposite colours to the walls we will, also, create a valuable 𝓬𝓸𝓷𝓽𝓻𝓪𝓼𝓽 to the Italians.
Because South and North are just like Day and Night!
۩ Oh, and 𝓽𝓻𝓪𝓭𝓲𝓽𝓲𝓸𝓷𝓼 !
Italians value traditions foremost! You'll find them in decorative tiles, mosaics, partitions and family valuables.
Have you imagined the story in your head? If yes, then it will linger forever, aiding you to recognize the style and it's values.
𝓘 𝓽𝓮𝓵𝓵 𝓼𝓽𝓸𝓻𝓲𝓮𝓼 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓘𝓭𝓮𝓪𝓼 𝔀𝓲𝓽𝓱 𝓶𝔂 𝓭𝓮𝓼𝓲𝓰𝓷𝓼.
