Raising Stress-Proof Kids: Parenting Today’s Children for Tomorrow’s World

Chrysalis School is excited to invite you to a Parent Talk with Dr. Shelley Davidow, author of Raising Stress Proof Kids on Thursday 10th August at 7.15 to 8.30 pm at the CWA Rooms, in Church St, Bellingen.

A compelling and informative guide for every parent, ‘Raising Stress – Proof Kids’ offers an eye – opening view on how the unhealthy and unnecessary stresses of our educational systems as well as outdated perspectives on parenting affect our children. Drawing on cutting – edge research from the Institute of HeartMarth, California, as well as the author’s own extensive experience in working with children and teens, it offers practical advice on how we can significantly and positively impact the lives of our children as they move through developmental phases and become mature, self – regulated and composed beings ready to succeed in our increasingly complex world.
