“Kids Tweens, & Quarantines” is a presentation for parents focusing on the impact of COVID-19 on our children. In a dynamic fashion, this talk will address the young brain, explain how and why parents need to practice self-care, survey the signs of anxiety and how to be of support to their anxious child, explain the grieving process, and address the “new norms” everyone is adjusting to during this unprecedented time.
This event will include significant time for parents to ask questions and get concrete answers for practical steps they can take in real time --- who has time to wait?
