Do you spend a good part of your day in the car driving between activities? How can you tell if your child is overscheduled? Join Meghan Barlow, PhD, of Barlow & Adams Behavioral Health, as she discusses how to know when it’s time to say "no" to an activity. She will provide tips for helping your family decide what is too much or not enough as well as ways to find balance. Dr. Barlow will also address whether in today’s culture, saying “no” will make your child lose the competitive edge and if allowing a child to quit sends the wrong message.
