Parents often approach us with questions about what is common and developmentally appropriate for their child’s age.
We are grateful to school counselors Denise Rousso (St. Anne) and Jennifer Moyer-Taylor (St. Joseph) for allowing us to reproduce this short compilation of their research in order to assist you in navigating these sometimes challenging, yet wonderful times.
Be aware that children move through these stages at different rates, some sooner, others later.
We hope you find their words helpful.
