During these difficult times, we know that many students are feeling anxiety and intense emotions, especially about school. It can be hard for parents to know how to help their children. That’s why we felt it was important to share information about an upcoming webinar that McLean Hospital is presenting: Managing Emotions and Expectations Around School.
From the McLean website:
Everything You Want to Know About School and Anxiety
Whether children are returning full-time in person to school, part-time, or fully remote for their year, this uncharted territory for education has caused anxiety for kids and parents alike. Regardless of the environment they’ll be learning in, it’s important to manage the expectations of kids and help with their transition into a new school year. How can we help support them and lower their anxieties while also balancing work and parenting?
Join us live on Wednesday, August 26 at 12pm EST as Dr. Macht-Greenberg will share ways to support the new educational experience, methods to successfully balance the many demands that come with parenting, working, and teaching kids during a pandemic, and answers your questions about child development and returning to school.
