This is a semi regular group for parent looking for peer supports. Join us for an hour of learning, and support for your middle school and high school students.
Watching your children struggle with social situations, anxiety, depressive thoughts and/or overwhelming stress can be one of the most difficult challenges we experience as parents. Many of us are left with a heavy feeling of helplessness and even hopelessness. Anxiety with our kids can be contagious. Watching our child or teen’s anxiety increase can cause us, as parents, to feel increased anxiety and stress. Being equipped and prepared with strategies to help our child with anxiety and stress can be helpful not only to our child’s mental health but also to our own. In our meetup and discussion group we will focus on.... • How addressing our own stressors can help our kids. Identifying stress producing triggers and what to do with them. • Distinguishing between healthy vs. unhealthy stress. • Exploring effective coping strategies vs unhealthy coping skills. • Introducing Mindfulness skills. • Improving communication with our child during times of stress.
