#3. Instead of Asking “What can I do?”…

In emergent situations, thinking of what kind of help to ask for can be overwhelming to the family, so offer something specific rather than asking what is needed. Here are some examples:

“I am going to grab Joey to drive him to and from practice for awhile, just have him ready by 5:00 and I will have snacks and water in the car for him”

“I can food shop this week or take the kids for a few hours, which feels most helpful?”

“I’m going early to the concert tonight and will save you seats on the left hand side towards the front. See you there!”

“I’m dropping off bagels tomorrow morning by 7:00 they will be on the porch. Enjoy! XOXO”
