Parent Perspectives

Raising Emotionally Strong Kids, presented by Sissy Goff and David Thomas from Daystar Counseling

What does it look like to raise kids with emotional strength? Kids who have the skills and resources to navigate all the moments of life - from the first day of school to conflict with friends, losing games and struggling with homework, facing challenges and developing resilience. 

The global pandemic put a spotlight on the lack of skills most individuals have in place. It’s part of why we saw accelerated rates of anxiety and depression. Emotional skills are learned skills, no different than learning to ride a bike or starting a new sport. These skills will center around the Strength of Emotion, the Strength of Connection and the Strength of Purpose.

This class will equip parents and educators, grandparents and coaches, to help kids & adolescents develop three foundational ingredients for emotional health, known as the 3 R’s. You will walk away with questions to ask the kids and adolescents in your life, practical ideas and intentional practices for building emotional strength in your family.
