EDUCATION IS A PARTNERSHIP

Supporting the Anxious Child

Your Diefenbaker PAC has arranged an opportunity for Diefenbaker Parents to attend a session to help understand anxiety in children...

There is currently an epidemic of anxiety affecting children of all ages.  Anxiety can many forms including panic, phobias, sleep issues, physical illnesses as well as a host of perplexing behaviours including seeking attention and avoidance. Today’s world can create many challenges for children with school pressures, peer interactions, family dynamics, negative self-image, perfectionism and many other stressors that impede a child’s ability to play, learn and grow.  Through stories, examples and theory, Patti Drobot will suggest ways in which parents can understand anxiety and help support their children to find psychological and emotional rest in their world.
