The demands of being a kid these days have changed a bit since adults were young. If you are a parent, caregiver, or interact with children on a regular basis, it is helpful to have some tools at your disposal to help them deal with the slings and arrows of life.
Local psychologist and mother of four Eileen Kennedy-Moore, Ph.D., has written and hosts a video available through The Great Courses titled Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids. Dr. Kennedy-Moore conveys powerful, effective strategies to guide children through many difficult issues in a warm, down to earth style. Topics discussed include, handling anxiety, popularity and rejection, bullying, self-esteem, plus many more.
She educates by skillfully intertwining common knowledge, complex psychological study results, and everyday situations.
