COMMON STRESSORS FOR TODAY’S STUDENTS AND HOW PARENTS CAN ADDRESS THEM
In schools today, bullying, peer socialization and social media all amplify anxiety in children. It is important for parents to recognize warning signs and be able to talk to their children about common stressors. In this seminar, we will discuss anxiety, including social media and its effect on school-age children. We will wrap up with a Q&A session addressing parents’ specific concerns.
