Does any of this sound like your child? 

  • Clinging, crying and/or tantrums when you separate 
  • Excessive shyness, avoiding social situations 
  • Constant worry 
  • Avoiding situations or places because of fears 
  • Complaints of frequent stomach aches or headaches 
  • Sudden and frequent panic attacks 

Your child may be struggling with anxiety. And you may feel frustrated and helpless. You are not alone. One in three children will experience an anxiety disorder before adulthood. Unless treated, many will grow up to be anxious adults. This class will help you better understand the nature of anxiety, refrain from reinforcing your child’s distress by accommodating behaviors, and apply simple strategies to handle day to day challenges.

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed when faced with your child’s challenging behaviors?

Do you often find yourself struggling to stay calm?

You are not alone.

Human beings are built to reflect each other’s emotions. When our children display intense feelings and behaviors, our brains naturally reflect those. We start to feel stressed, angry, fearful, or overwhelmed just like our children. You will learn practical strategies to help you be a calm center for your child’s chaotic world.

After this class, you will be able to:
Recognize how strongly the way you handle stress affects your child’s behavior
Apply specific brain calming strategies to stay calm and think clearly during challenging times
Develop a practical self-care routine that supports consistency and calm in your daily life

Our current health crisis creates daily challenges that many of us have never experienced. Our children can’t easily spend time with their friends. We can’t just stop in at the local pizza place to chill out on a Friday evening. Our daily schedules are both gone and more complicated at the same time. We are facing the challenge of inventing new ways of doing things many times each day. How is your family handling the challenge of creating new ways of coping and thriving? How are you doing at authentically tuning into your own needs and modeling wellness for your kids? 

Participants in this class will be able to: 

  • Recognize the importance of slowing down and changing expectations 
  • Identify family meeting strategies that suit your family and increase collaboration and cooperation 
  • Apply approaches that help siblings tolerate each other with kindness 
  • Apply communication and parenting approaches that focus on optimism, resilience and connection to effectively navigate the new normal as a family.
