Kids Have Stress Too! KHST!

October 2017

Developed by The Psychology Foundation of Canada, the Kids Have Stress Too! program helps parents understand childhood stress and how to provide children with the tools to deal with stress effectively. It is a broad-based primary prevention program which provides parents with the knowledge, awareness and skills to help your child become healthier and more resilient through learning how to manage their stress. 

WFC will be hosting two sessions in October; child care will be provided during the workshop: 

Session 1: 

Wednesday, October 11

5:30 - 8:30pm 

(Light Dinner Provided)

Session 2: 

Saturday, October 28

9:30 - 12:30pm

(Light Snack Provided) 

Stress is a normal part of everyday life for children and adults. It helps to motivate us and adds a positive challenge to life. However, too much stress can be counter-productive and overwhelming. 
Stress among children is estimated to have increased 45% over the past 30 years. The good news is that building emotional health and resiliency can help children concentrate, learn, interact more successfully and deal with other stressors they may face in their lives. (Psychology Foundation of Canada) 

"The signs and symptoms of stress can often be seen in challenging behaviours. Children may be reprimanded for actions that are really stress reactions, rather than intentional misbehavior or poor cognitive ability". Lantieri, L. 2008.
