Description:

Helping Your Child to Survive and Thrive

Dr. Hibbs and Dr. Rostain will discuss how to help your child survive and thrive as you prepare to launch them into the real world outside the comforts of home.  Childhood is evaporating into a life filled with over-scheduled activities and screen time, and adolescence has become a high-stakes, time-starved pressure cooker of stress, fear, and perfectionism for kids. Many parents experience anxious over-involvement, wondering, "Will my child be OK?" and "Will they be ready for the challenges ahead?" Based on The Stressed Years of Their Lives, this talk helps parents and those who work with children (fourth grade through young adult) for a successful launch to college and early young adulthood by reviewing the complex  stressors children face and revealing the keys to health promotion and harm reduction.

Dr. B. Janet Hibbs and Dr Anthony Rostain will have copies of their book, The Stressed Years of Their Lives, available to purchase at the event.  Learn More about the authors, click here.
