During this public health crisis, we are all exploring ways to support the parents of our child and adolescent patients.  In addition to the guidance we provide, we are also challenged to help parents develop resilience and find practical ways to provide for the needs of the family.

Our presenters will discuss:

  • Parenting guidelines for ages 3-6; 7-11; 12 and up

  • How to think developmentally and practically

  • Helping parents to take care of themselves
