KidsMatter - Anxiety


​We enjoyed a very successful parent afternoon with Melita from the Palm Beach Neighbourhood Centre. Melita focussed on presenting information on what to consider if your child worries too much.  Now Melita will be doing a follow up three hour workshop with parents that are interested in knowing more and developing strategies to help children 'deal with worries'.

This session will be held in the library on Wednesday 19th November from 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  In this session you will learn how to spot the signs and symptoms of anxiety, it will help you to become equipped to help your child through moments of stress and give you some skills to support children and build their resilience.  The half day workshop will be focussing on:

- Patterns in children's behaviour

- The possible causes of anxiety, stress and worry in children's lives

- Strategies for parents to best support children

- Child energy types and the influence it has on children's anxious behaviour

- How to build critical thinking and resilience skills in your child

You just can come along on the day or ring and book a place in the workshop.
