Free Talk: How to Manage Stress and Anxiety in Children
Stress and anxiety in children is a worry of many parents due to the pressures that an increasingly connected and competitive world creates for our children. These new challenges, in addition to those faced at school both academically and socially, make modern parenting a difficult task. To give parents insights and strategies to help children better manage stress and become more resilient, Stamford has invited one of our most experienced counselors, Ms. Laura Day, from our Stamford Singapore campus.
The session will address such questions as: What are some ways we can help our children manage stress in a modern world? What are some common stresses for our children at different ages? How can we help our children become more resilient?
Date: Thursday, March 15th, 2018
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm (refreshments provided)
Venue: Admissions Office, Suites 4005-4007, Level 40, Two Exchange Square, 8 Connaught Place, Hong Kong
