From the Parenting Center:
What? Difficult conversations about potentially scary and anxiety-provoking subjects can be uncomfortable. We want to keep our children protected and innocent for as long as we can, but sometimes the world interrupts that innocence. Our children are exposed to news about school shootings, natural disasters, and stories of violence and abuse. At school they participate in fire drills as well as code red and yellow drills. Research has shown that a failure to talk about such important issues can leave children unprepared and unsupported as they try to understand and cope with these difficult topics. Join us for this important workshop. Learn how to create and environment where no topic is off limits – even if your kid’s questions leave you speechless.
