Knowing when and how to support our children at school is never easy. The dangers presented by a pandemic only add to the challenge of balancing the need to protect our children, on the one hand, while continuing to support their emotional growth on the other. This virtual session offers clear and useful guidelines to help parents navigate these challenges while maintaining close, supportive relationships with their children.

Dr. Alex Russell, co-author of "Drop the Worry Ball: How to Parent in the Age of Entitlement”, is a clinical psychologist who lives and works in Toronto. The heart of his message is that children learn through the experience of non-catastrophic, painful failure and it is through the process of these failures that they mature into resilient, resourceful and emotionally balanced individuals. Alex is a father of two, and an avid hockey player and coach.
