Anger and Eruptions: Understanding anger in our children and what to do about it
March 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Vanessa Lapointe is hosting an information session at Reach Child and Youth Development Centre.
“Anger in children is one of those emotions that often takes us by surprise, and indeed provokes interesting responses out of us as parents. Where does anger come from? When is it a problem? What does anger have to do with brain development? This workshop will take on the task of helping parents understand the NEEDS of children when anger erupts. We will explore the emotional pathways that lead to angry explosions and we will seek to understand how to respond in ways that calm rather than agitate, helping to facilitate growth for the developing brain.”
