Watch Dr Justin Coulson’s webinar on guiding children sensitively through tough times

Popular family and parenting educator Dr Justin Coulson gave parents and carers invaluable ideas and support during The Parents Website Webinar on helping our kids through these tough times. Here, you can watch the full webinar.

It’s been a wild 2020. Fires, floods, and now a global pandemic called COVID19 – the coronavirus. And with all of the craziness, our families are being forced to adapt to a new normal; one that includes school closings, parents working from home, international border blocks preventing travel, and more.

One of the central concerns for parents is practical. How do we manage the day-to-day challenges of kids being home from school?

And then there’s the psychological issue: how to help them manage anxiety related to so many unknowns? Sometimes we don’t even have answers ourselves.

This webinar is for every parent whose children have questions about the unusual times we are all facing right now.

You’ll learn about the best ways to talk with our children about things we don’t know much about, how to alleviate anxiety, how to manage kids at home without going crazy. Justin also answers questions from our webinar attendees.
