The Long View: Helping Kids Gain a Sense of Control During COVID-19
Neuroscience shows that it is adversity in life - dealing with tolerable challenges and stressors - that wires the brain for resilience.

About the Event
How can we help our kids gain a sense of control during COVID-19?
What can we do to support their resilience and ability to "bounce back" from the stressors of social distancing, remote learning, and shelter-in-place orders? And how can we help them to take the "long view"?
As parents, we want to make our kids feel safe. Protecting them makes us feel better by increasing our sense of control, but it works against their feeling a sense of control.
Join Ned Johnson, professional tutor-geek, president and founder of PrepMatters, and co-author of The Self-Driven Child, for an engaging virtual event (webinar) on helping kids gain a sense of control over their lives, even in the midst of a pandemic.
Parents, students, educators, clinicians, and community members welcome! Free admission. Virtual Zoom session and Q&A will be video recorded.
