About This Workshop

Post-pandemic parenting has made life a lot more confusing. Young people are more anxious and depressed than ever before. And sometimes the signs can be easy to miss. You want to support your child to succeed, but also don’t want them worrying and stressed about school or friends. This session will be a conversation among MITES parents and Peace At Home professionals from diverse cultural backgrounds. You’ll have a chance to express your concerns and get some perspective on how your parenting style may impact your child. You’ll hear from other parents and from our experts on what helps kids do well and be well without undue stress. 

  • This workshop was hosted in-person so there is no recording. Check out the handouts below for proven, effective solutions that quickly produce positive results giving you more clarity and confidence.
