Parenting Advice: The Power of Laughter (and Tears)

Our guest blogger and school counselor, Christa Marvenko-Athas, has some useful insight for parents coping with this stressful time. Take a look at her suggestions of how laughter can help.

There is not much that seems funny these days. We are continuously living in a state of stress and trying to cope the best we can. As you scroll through social media platforms, or watch recaps of popular comedians and talk-show hosts, you will see many people trying to use humor as a way to cope.

Celebrate May Day with WSB

May Day is also our community’s family day and a very special celebration each year.

May Day is celebrated each year on May 1 and is a traditional celebration of nature’s revival after a long and cold winter. The Waldorf School of Baltimore celebrates May Day by honoring our students’ families, grandparents, and friends. 

How to Create Inspiring Learning Space in your Home

Set your student up for success by creating a learning space that excites your child and helps them dive into learning each day.

Waldorf classrooms are designed specifically to accommodate student development and welcome learning. While classrooms emanate warmth and are designed specifically for children we know an exact classroom replication isn’t a possibility for many parents engaged in distance learning.

However, there are ways to create a space that will inspire your child to be creative and stir up excitement for projects each day.
