Help Your Children Build Resilience
Hurricane Sandy and the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary created a national response of fear, confusion and worry. Children specifically, have been struggling to understand their own feelings and reactions to these events. This seminar will look at the varying ways children react to events like these and provide information for parents to build children’s resilience and to respond appropriately to their needs.
As requested by our family members, we are offering this valuable program, which we know will benefit you, your family, and your friends. Please feel free to forward this information to them.
