June 17: Supporting young children emotionally through trying times (for parents of children 4 to 8 years old)

Families everywhere have been learning to live in a whole new reality. As time goes on, many may feel that it’s hard to continue holding things together. How about the little ones? How do we know exactly what their experience of this difficult time might be? What do we do when they start hitting the roof? In this workshop, we will explore ways of supporting young children (and their caregivers) with their big feelings.

When: Wednesday, June 17; 6 to 7:30 p.m. EST
Presenters: Lisa Ihnat, MA, RP and Tamara Este, BA, CYC                                                       
Webinar will be run on a videoconferencing platform.
