The Parent’s Guide To
The What-If Summer
Presented by: Lana Gollyhorn, MA, Psychotherapist
DATE: May 7, 2020 (Thursday)
TIME: 9:30am, MST
DURATION: 30 minutes
With summer around the bend, we are caught up in finishing home school and wondering how end-of-school year celebrations will play out. But what happens when school is “officially closed” and we have to think about summer camps, promised vacations, and the reality that we might not get to hangout with family and friends just yet? Houston, we have a problem.
This is where we need to address these uncertainties with our kids without the dreaded meltdowns or arguments. Over this free 30-minute parent seminar, you’ll learn:
- How to talk with your child about potential cancellations and replacements of their summer plans so they feel supported and you’re not walking on egg shells while waiting for answers
- The 6 social and emotional needs your child has to grow and thrive over the summer
- How to create summer plans that are interesting and fun in lieu of postponed family activities and travel
- Why Camp Self is the best self and how to re-create elements of social bonding if camps/internships/programs are canceled
I have been receiving lots of great questions from you over these last few weeks of shelter-in-place regulations. In order to cover specific questions during the webinar, please make sure to submit them on the sign-up form.
