Parenting with the Pros - Anxiety: Is It All In My Head? Recognizing the Signs of Anxiety in Children and Adults
About this Event
From worrying about good grades to fitting in with friends, there are many reasons for our children to become anxious. And as parents struggling with our own worries, we may wonder how we can help our children (and ourselves) better manage anxiety. DePelchin Children's Center brings together mental health experts to discuss how to respond to our children, calm our family’s nerves and promote a healthy mind!
There is no charge to attend, and a box lunch will be provided.
