PTA General Meeting: Nov. 8, 2023
Please join us Wednesday, November 8th at 7pm via Zoom as we welcome guest speaker Dr. Rebecca Resnik, licensed psychologist, to talk about Children's Stress: The Curse and the Blessing. During our age of stress, smart parents are focusing on how best to help their children develop resilience. We know our role as parents is to raise children who can stand strong in the face of challenges. However, this responsibility too often feels overwhelming, even before the pandemic hit. For this presentation, Dr. Resnik will describe how our children's stress response is actually both a "curse and a blessing." She will discuss why so much of what we have been told about stress is wrong and update parents on what the science says about kids and stress. Attendees will learn to tell the difference between everyday situational stress and anxiety disorders. Dr. Resnik will provide practical tools for helping children and adolescents harness their stress and re-discover their spark.
