Mr. Herbst's Homepage
Thank you for visiting my webpage. Please feel free to surf this website for helpful resources and support. View the resources under Important Links for information about many important topics for teachers and parents. Other resources include coping with death, managing through divorce, Autism, and bullying.
Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help YOU cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
Not all children and teens respond to stress in the same way. Some common changes to watch for include:
- Excessive crying or irritation in younger children
- Returning to behaviors they have outgrown
- Excessive worry or sadness
- Unhealthy eating or sleeping habits
- Irritability and “acting out” behaviors in teens
- Poor school performance or avoiding school
- Difficulty with attention and concentration
- Avoidance of activities enjoyed in the past
- Unexplained headaches or body pain
- Use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs
Please monitor your student’s social media, text messages, etc. usage. When students are bored or trapped in technology too long without structure that is when mean messages get sent, inappropriate conversations or pictures, and exploration into some mature websites could happen. Please be checking your child’s phones, messages, apps, etc.
The links under Important Links and your online counseling classroom have some ideas, tips and tricks, and making the most of your time at home suggestions.
