YMCA Kids Have Stress Too!

This 2 week 2 hour program is designed for parents of children 2-8 years old who are concerned their child is exhibiting signs and symptoms of stress and/or anxiety. Behaviours such as difficulty concentrating, trouble getting along with others, unexplained health issues, disrupted sleep, fearfulness, or repetitive worrying are some of the ways stress shows up in children. Developed by the Psychology Foundation of Canada, this workshop aims to provide parents with specific skills and strategies to better assist their child with identifying and coping with stressful feelings and behaviours. Parents will learn how to:

  • Identify what their child’s stressors are.

  • Identify signs and symptoms of stress in children.

  • Minimize the impact of stress on a child’s physical and psychological health.

  • Apply strategies to help children manage stress better.
