Thriving in a Time of Transition: Supporting Our Teens
Tuesday, October 17, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Speaker Topic: Anxiety in Middle School and High School Students
With Dr. Dan Einstein, MD – Anthroposophic Doctor
Tuesday, Oct 17 from 7-8:30pm
Even under the best of circumstances, the teen years are filled with challenges, and the COVID years have been particularly tough on teens. Successfully meeting challenges can become a foundation for a thriving adulthood. How can we, as adults, help our teens work through these challenges? How do we help without stifling their independence, or their ability to learn from failures? This discussion will help parents understand how the lens of Anthroposophy can help address some of the common problems confronting teenagers: loneliness, anxiety, and impulsiveness.
