While college decisions may be delivered through email, web portals, or even instagram now, the emotional experience is the same. How do you prepare them and how do you prepare yourself? After this class you will be able to:

  • Support your child navigate the big emotions of the application process

March 9, 2022 12:00 pm EDT

Challenges & Solutions

Join us for this expert-led live class exclusively for MIT. A recording of the class with handouts will be available once the class is complete.

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.

● Communication skills that build strong parent-child connections 

● Parent behaviors that help kids cope with stress and develop self-control
