Ann will be speaking to parents at St. Wilfrid Catholic School as part of the St. Wilfrid Catholic School Advisory Council Parent Workshop Series. Registration details here. Presentation description below.
Parenting Through the Storm: Parents can make a difference when it comes to children’s mental health. That's a powerful and reassuring message if you're a parent and you've been alarmed by recent news headlines about anxiety, depression, and other mental health difficulties in children and adolescents. In this practical and idea-packed workshop, parenting author Ann Douglas will share some highlights from her latest book Parenting Through the Storm: How to Handle The Highs, The Lows, and Everything In-Between – a solutions-oriented guide to helping a child who is struggling, whether it’s your child or another child you care about. You’ll learn about parenting strategies, advocacy skills, stress management and coping skills – ideas that are applicable to all parents and all kids. Expect to be inspired and entertained and to walk away with practical tips that you can apply to your life as a parent.
