- Parent Session
November 30, 2023
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The expression of frustration and aggression in children and teens can take on many forms including temper tantrums and various forms of attack. Part of making headway requires understanding the roots of frustration and aggression and how to deal with the resulting behaviours. This presentation will focus on strategies for dealing with a frustrated child while preserving one’s relationship with them. It will address the importance of setting limits and helping children learn they can survive the futilities that are part of life.
