Now in its seventh year, our 4 to 14 Speaker Series: Parenting Elementary School Kids is open to the public and provides an opportunity for parents to hear insights from authors, researchers, and other experts in the child development field.
On Thursday, November 2, 2017 we welcomed Dr. Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., author of The Opposite of Worry: The Playful Parenting Approach to Childhood Anxieties and Fears, to share simple, effective strategies that build connection through fun, play, and empathy. Whether it's the monster in the closet or the fear that arises from new social situations, school, or sports, anxiety can be especially challenging for children.
Our series is open to all members of the public. We welcome anyone interested in raising healthy children in today's world.
