About This Workshop

If you’re feeling like you don’t have the bandwidth to be the parent you really want to be, you are not alone. 

One recent study reports that 66% of working parents are experiencing “parental burnout” which may include increased anxiety, depression, use of alcohol, increased punitive parenting and even feeling distant from their kids. At the same time we are seeing soaring rates of depression, anxiety, self-harm and other mental health problems in children and teens. The American Academy of Pediatrics has actually declared a “national crisis” in pediatric mental health. This post-pandemic perfect storm is impacting families across the country. 

This workshop will help you recognize the ways this national crisis may be affecting your family and/or how to protect your family from its impact. You’ll have a chance to consider parenting basics that can reduce family challenges and strengthen family well-being. You’ll be able to look at when you may want to lean in a bit more with your kids and when you can step back to reduce stress.
