Tools for Success: Navigating the Social/Emotional Journey

Supporting our children involves caring for them completely: physically, spiritually, academically, and socially/emotionally. Join us as Bear Creek's Upper School Counselor Lauren Neely shares tips on navigating the social/emotional journey with your child. Our discussion will focus on the social demands (friendship, social media, peer pressure, etc.) kids encounter during the various stages of development as well as how parents can support their children as they navigate their emotional lives. Intended audience: families with children in preschool through grade 12.
