As parents, we want to make certain our kids have all of the tools they need to become strong, resilient adults. However, some common parenting strategies can accidentally hinder our children developing critical skills to deal with anxiety, perfectionism, and other difficult emotions. This session will focus on resilience from a biological and behavioral perspective. Parents will better understand their children through the lens of brain development and emotional intelligence. Participants will leave with concrete strategies to develop emotional resilience.
