Parenting Today - Coaching For Confidence

Coaching For Confidence - Tuesday May 6, 2014

Presented by: Dr. Maria Phelps, School Psychologist, Educational Support Services, St. James-Assiniboia School Division

Shyness and anxiety are normal human emotions.  Some children, however, are much more shy or fearful than the average child.  For these children, anxiety may interfere with their enjoyment of school, activities with other children, new experiences (swimming lessons, birthday parties, etc.), and their development of independence and confidence. In this session, parents will learn about anxiety in children aged four to seven and gain useful tools to help your children overcome this problem.

Workshops will be held from 6 – 8 p.m. at Educational Support Services – Jameswood School, 1 Braintree Crescent (off Olive & Ness).  Free pizza supper will be offered from 6:00 - 6:30 p.m. and session will take place from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.  To register please call Arlie Williams-Taylor at 885-9555 or
