Understanding Your Child's Emotional Health:
A Parent Workshop
Thursday, February 18, 2021 | 6:30 - 8:00pm
Please join us for an evening to discuss topics related to the grief and loss in the pandemic, including helping our children navigate a changing support system at school, loss of activities and sporting events that have been a staple in our community for many years, and navigating different relationships with your children at home. Our evening together will provide education and discussion on all of these issues. You will have the opportunity to receive a "tool" bag that has resources you can use at home with your family. We will also discuss a plan to incorporate the ideas learned into your family routine. We will be holding a separate event for students.
