Parent & Caregiver Workshop
Let's Talk: Navigating the Pandemic as a Parent
Host the conversation every parent and caregiver needs right now to get through pandemic 2.0.
A guided discussion by author and children's mental health advocate about how to cope and help your children in the short and long term.
This workshop is ideal for:
Anyone who wants to better understand how they can help support kids' mental well-being
We've been faced with unprecedented levels of stress from living in survival mode for nearly two years (!). And just when some of us started to feel a little more "normal," the particularly virulent Delta variant swept through our communities, creating even more uncertainty and fear around what lies ahead and when - if ever - the pandemic will finally be over.
Join Jacqui Lazo, a devoted children's mental health advocate and co-author of the new wellness resource book Comeback Kids, for a discussion on how parents can care for themselves while also supporting their children as we learn to manage our heightened anxiety during these challenging times.
Participants will learn:
actionable strategies for calming caregivers' fears and managing their anxiety;
best practices and conversation starters to help parents support their kids during this transition;
warning signs to be on the lookout for when it comes to kids and mental health concerns; and
a roadmap for how families can collaborate to build a brighter future going forward
Jacqui will also provide the tools and resources caregivers need to help their kids at any age stay healthy, happy and focused on learning.
In an effort to inform, engage and inspire families in your community, we encourage participants to share what's working for them and ask questions as a way to more deeply connect with neighbors and friends.
After this discussion, the parents in your community will feel more well prepared to parent and create a sustainable, positive family dynamic for a brighter future.
