Growing Up Peaceful - McLean, VA

  • McClean Presbyterian Church 1020 Balls Hill Road McClean, VA 22101 (map)

The hope of this seminar is to awaken us to an awareness of how we deal with our own anxiety so that we can be intentional in helping shepherd our kids through theirs.  During our time we will look at different ways kids express anxiety to their parents. We will also look at how our reaction to their anxiety can be similar to how we handle our own fears.   We will consider how to take anxious protests seriously, how to help ground a child who is overwhelmed, and how to help them “disobey” worrisome thinking. You will receive practical tools as well as spiritual encouragement to rest in what God is doing through your child’s struggle.

Our speaker is Meredith Spatola, LPC, of the Barnabas Center in Charlotte, NC. Meredith is an engaging, informative speaker on the topic of anxiety. I hope you can join us for this important seminar. The fee is $50.00. (Scholarships are available).
