Event Details

Join us for the kickoff of the new live webinar: Being the Star You Are: Mastering Stressful Moments so You Can Truly Shine 

Stress can bring out the worst in people and is a major trigger behind tantrums, whining, and aggression.  During this engaging interactive live webinar, you will

  • Explore effective methods to reduce stress throughout the day and during taxing moments to keep your cool and build self-regulation skills in yourself and the children you care for
  • Pinpoint helpful adult responses and mindfulness tricks to use during stressful moments that help you build children’s ability to calm over time
  • Brainstorm strategies with others who care for young children to confidently address a stressful time of day so everyone can truly shine, today and tomorrow

How you respond during the tensest moments will impact children's emotional development and regulation skills, but also how you feel about your important work!
