Your child’s sexuality is part of their identity, and it’s important to talk about it. We know it can be uncomfortable to talk about sex and sexuality with your child, and we also know how important it is to support their confidence and positive and meaningful relationships. This course is designed to help you have these difficult and important conversations and help you and your child be sex positive – embracing that sexuality is a part of humanity. We will talk about:

  • Stepping out of the comfort zone
  • Supporting your child’s identity and relationships
  • Consent
  • Safety and Assault

Raise Happy Children: Parenting for Optimism and Resilience

November 30, 2021 12:00 pm EDT

Course Preview

Challenges & Solutions

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

Parents sometimes feel discouraged when their children want more toys, the newest technology, or the coolest sneakers that they believe will make them really happy. And maybe those things will work…for a few hours or a couple of days. What really makes our kids happy? How often do we get caught up in what media tells us will bring joy into our lives? 

Research tells us that “things” don’t really make us happy. While temperament is inborn, parents can actually help children increase optimism (positive outlook and hopefulness) and resilience (ability to effectively bounce back from challenges). These capacities are strongly connected to well-being and success. You will examine your day to day interactions and consider approaches that will increase these important traits in yourself and your children. You will also gain the courage to set limits on “stuff” and focus on what counts in building a happy family.

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.
