It's not OK to be away.... or to be late to school 

When kids miss school, not only is their academic progress impeded, forcing them to catch up on missed work (which some never do), they often miss important interactions with their peers which can compound issues of social isolation and low self-esteem.

Michael Grose talks about Resilience and Resourcefulness in kids. 

You can now access parent tip sheets and other resources from Michael Grose as well as local forums and workshops to provide you with the skills, networks and information to help you on this parenthood journey!
