Issue: Child Development and Well-Being

Program Topic: Supporting our Kids Through the Challenges of Life – Tips for Parents and Caregivers

Key Discussion Points:
a) Dealing with challenges is a normal part of life
b) Significant adults – parents, teachers, others – are key to helping kids see their strengths and survive trauma through their love, their relationship, their understanding and their non-judgmental caring
c) A good majority of us have experienced some sort of trauma in our lives – we need to make it more “normal” to have these discussions rather than making people feel badly about the struggles that they sometimes have.
d) We can all be there for our youth!
