Calm and Confident Kids: How to help kids worry less, manage stress and get through tough times
Do you have a 4 to 12 year old with a tendency towards worry, feeling anxious about being away from carers and shy or nervous around others?
Come along to the FREE "Calm and Confident Kids" seminar at the Blackwood Church of Christ on Thursday 9th November 2017 at 7pm.
This is a 90 minute workshop conducted by child/adolescent psychologist Kirrilie Smout. You will learn about:
- The different kinds of anxiety and worry children experience
- What causes anxiety in children
- What strategies parents/carers can use to help their child feel less anxious
- What to avoid doing and saying to make anxiety and worry worse
There will also be an opportunity for questions at the end.
