Daves Creek Parent Academy
Developing Children's Excellence and Success!
What is Daves Creek Parent Academy?
Thursday February 18th! 6:30-7:30 in the cafe!
This Month's Parent Academy Topic Will Be:
"How to Help Your Child Handle Anxiety” (Guest Speaker : Kendra H. Gilbert, MA, LPC, Owner
Beyond Today Counseling Center, LLC)
Anxiety and Stress Management for Children:
Many children suffer from anxiety and stress, but there is a difference in a child who may be struggling with an actual anxiety disorder, and one who could benefit from managing stress more effectively. During our presentation, we will cover what an anxiety disorder looks like in a child, and what are the best treatment options for an Anxiety Disorder. We will also cover signs and symptoms of an overly stressed child, and what side effects may result from too much stress. Some children are naturally over-achievers and perfectionist, but these too carry physical, mental and emotional consequences that can be avoided by teaching a child methods for creating a more balanced emotional, physical, and mental healthy life. The skills presented in this presentation will be beneficial for years to come, especially if healthy lifestyle habits are implemented at a young age.
