This Zoom meeting is offered for FIRST 5 Partners and other local professionals such as Social Workers, Home Visitors, Childcare and Preschool providers, Family Resource Center staff, and Therapeutic Service Providers. Parents are also welcome.

Parenting a child with special needs can be overwhelming, exhausting and scary at times, especially during a pandemic! More than ever, parents now feel anxious, worried, and guilty. They are struggling with knowing how to balance their time and wonder if they are doing enough to support their child(ren). They long to let go of feeling like a “bad” parent and want to be more fun, confident, and empowered.

In this interactive workshop, we’ll look at ways to support overwhelmed parents dealing with stress.

Participants will:

  • Learn 3 important (and easy) steps to successfully manage stress and overwhelm
  • Identify what has been overwhelming you and discover how it’s affecting you, your loved ones and/or those you work with
  • Get educated on what stresses parents out and how you can support them
  • Walk away with new strategies and tools to decrease stress, overwhelm and increase feelings of empowerment, peace, patience, and joy.
