Ann will be one of the speakers at a community health event hosted at the school. She will be speaking about "Parenting in an Age of Anxiety: A Stress and Anxiety Toolkit for Parents." Focus: Stress management and coping skills for parents and kids
Description: All kids experience stress and anxiety. These emotions are part of being human, after all. But one in eight children experiences such a high level of anxiety that the child finds it difficult to manage at home or at school. In this thought-provoking presentation by Ann Douglas, a bestselling parent author who also struggles with anxiety, you’ll learn how to tell the difference between stress and anxiety (and why this matters); stress management skills for kids and adults; and anxiety management skills for kids and adults (what makes anxiety better, not worse).
