KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON:
PARENTING IN MOMENTS OF HIGH STRESS
WITH RACHEL BUSMAN PsyD, ABPP
Whether you have a toddler or a teen, no doubt you've had those days: Cheerios all over the floor, you’ve stepped on a Lego, no one has cleaned up their room, and the cat has thrown up on your bed. Parents - especially mothers - know how hard this moment in history is, and we all know what it’s like to not be our best selves in moments of high stress.
Join Dr Busman, from the Child Mind Institute, as she guides us in a talk about everyday strategies we can all adopt to keep our cool, stay calm, and model strength in the face of challenging moments.
We will discuss:
• Stress & the stress response
• Difference between typical stress and concerns that warrant more attention
• Strategies to reduce stress and increase well-being
• Tips for managing anger when setting limits
• Self-care tips
• How to get more help
Together we'll learn effective strategies to help us restore calm during these difficult days.
