Did you know that children can suffer from stress just like adults? We all complain of having too much stress in our lives, but we often don’t even consider the stress in our children's lives. School and social situations can sometimes be overwhelming for children, and it is important for them to learn techniques to cope with stress. Stress can affect a child's ability to learn, be happy, and can even negatively impact their health. If you are interested in learning more, Barbara Frum Branch will be hosting a program entitled Kids Have Stress Too!, for parents who have children ages 4-9 years old, on Tuesday April 16. Facilitated by a Toronto Public Health Nurse, this program will cover what is "stress" for your children, how stress affects your children, and how to help your children cope with stress. Please call 416-395-5440 to register.
