Stress and Your Teen: Encouraging the Shift from Anxious to Empowered Anxiety is an epidemic in our culture. According to the American Psychological Association's latest Stress in America survey, adolescents reported stress levels during the school year surpassed those of adults. Also, with an estimated 1 in 8 teens suffering from an anxiety disorder, how do we know whether our teen is suffering from normal teen angst or something more serious? The great news is that we have more and more knowledge of anxiety and an understanding of how to improve it.
Join us as we explore this topic including:
- Three hidden factors that contribute to anxiety in teens - How to recognize the difference between typical angst and clinical anxiety - 5 practical tools to support our stressed out teens - Ways to manage our own stress and avoid the "contagion" factor
Parenting to Empower Children with Learning Differences Does your child suffer from low self-esteem? Does your child think that having a learning difference means he/she is "stupid"? These misperceptions and negative feelings commonly plague students with special needs. The good news is that as parents armed with knowledge and tools, you can empower your child to not only embrace their differences, but also recognize and develop their strengths.
Join us for a discussion about: • The surprising truth about what a learning difference does- and doesn’t- mean • What your child really needs from you when suffering from low self-esteem • How you may be unknowingly undermining your child and how to quickly reverse that • How to help your child move from defeated to confident and thriving
