Emotional Resilience: Supporting Our Kids, Supporting Ourselves
January 13, 7 pm CST
Parents are often exhausted, overwhelmed and straight up scared thinking about how our children are going to make it out there in the world with their big emotions. What we find, however, is that children are more able to succeed when theyhave adults that can teach and model how to do this. In this seminar, we will discuss how to overcome barriers to being the confident, connected, and compassionate parent that you want to be.
