All children are sad, anxious, irritable, or aggressive at times. Occasionally kids find it challenging to sit still, pay attention, or interact with others. In most cases, these are just typical phases in their development. However, these behaviors may indicate a more serious problem in some children. Without attention, these mental health conditions can prevent children from reaching their full potential. 

Whether your child is doing fine and you want to  prevent future mental health issues, or your child just  doesn’t seem like their usual self, or has actually  declared suicidal thoughts, you can help.  

Participants in this class will be able to:

  • Identify and apply relationship strategies and everyday habits that support good mental health in children and teens. 
  • Recognize the impact of parents’ mental health on the family. 
  • Recognize and respond to signs in children and teens that more mental health support is needed.

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.

Teen development can be confusing and inspiring, sometimes at the same time. One moment your teen is making perfect sense and you are feeling optimistic about the way they are maturing. The next moment they seem swamped with emotion and dramatic in ways you just don’t understand. We will discuss some of your big questions like:

  • What does your teen really need from you and their environment in order to thrive?
  • How can you help them develop the skills and capacities they need for a successful launch into adulthood?
  • When can you let go and when do you need to set firm limits? 
  • What are yellow and red flags when it comes to their emotional health and how can you respond in helpful ways?

One thing is for sure – it takes a village – not just to support your teen but to help you stay grounded and positive during these turbulent years. Don’t go it alone. Join us to feel more confident and less confused about this challenging and inspiring time in your child’s development.
