As a parent, what will you do when your child is faced with tough challenges that can have a profound impact on his or her life? INcompassing Education has recently launched a series of webinars for parents. These webinars will discuss how parents can help children struggling with various problems and issues. We will provide information, tips, handouts, and resources so you can better support your child.
Being a parent is not easy. Parenting goes beyond just providing the material needs of a child. You also have to support your child physically, mentally, and emotionally. Now more than ever before, children are exposed to various challenges both at home and at school. With the emergence of social media, many kids choose to open up to their “social friends” rather than with their own family. This can weaken family relationships and cause parent and child to “drift” apart.
Webinar Series for Parents
Many children experience losing a parent at a young age. If you are caring for a child who recently lost a parent or loved one, you will find this webinar helpful. This one-hour session will explain the grieving process and how you can support a grieving child. Learn more about this topic and how you can help your child as he/she goes through this painful experience.
Self-injury usually begins at ages of 12 to 14 and is commonly the result of feelings of sadness, confusion, anxiety, or distress. Teenagers use self-injury as a way to deal with these negative emotions. Self-harm among adolescents is becoming more common and the rate of incidence is increasing. Recent studies show that approximately 13 to 23% of adolescents in the US attempt non-suicidal self-injury.
Many teenagers turn to social media sites to connect with others and find support. However, social media posts can encourage self-destructive behavior. In some cases, body shaming can place adolescents at a higher risk of self-injury. Feelings of shame can cause heightened levels of anxiety and distress, and teenagers may resort to cutting or other forms of self-injury to relieve these negative feelings.
Managing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) means accepting your child will behave in challenging ways. All that is needed is to make the behavior easier to handle. Developing a behavior management plan involves striking a balance between what you expect the child to do and what the child can actually do.
You should consider all aspects, including your child’s needs at home, school, and other social settings. When you work closely with school teachers and health professionals, it will be easier for your child to live normally and achieve success later in life. Learn more about how to help parents support their children with “ADHD for Parents”.
