Being There for Stressed and Anxious Kids [Video]
by Kate Fierce, LS/MS Counselor
The past several years of added stress and burden have taken a toll on everyone. Children and teenagers are reporting levels of stress, anxiety, and depression at rates never seen before.
How can caring adults in today's climate best support children and teens who are coming out of pandemic restrictions, and living through mental health challenges, emotional distress, social and political unrest, and so on? How can we as adults help ourselves be ready to support our children and teens as students, helping them be ready to learn in these trying times?
Kate Fierce, LS/MS Counselor, led a session for parents co-sponsored by SCA to give attendees strategies to support their own wellbeing while supporting the needs of the children and teens in their lives.
