April 29 - Helping Your Child Conquer Fears and Anxieties
Most children go through stages where they are more fearful or anxious. Some children are more impacted by their worries to the extent that it interferes with their ability to have fun, learn, sleep, or function in their family, school, or other social settings. This presentation will address normal and more severe fears and anxieties and help parents understand brain functions that produce these strong emotions. We will then help parents develop a tool kit to help their children and understand when they need to get outside help.
