Leading Our Kids Back to School by Dr. Deborah MacNamara

Thank you to Dr. Deborah MacNamara, clinical counsellor and author, who offered some suggestions for families who are deciding whether or not their children will return to school next week.  In Leading Our Kids Back to School, she shared information about children's sense of safety and security, and it was great to hear her affirm that the children's caregivers are the anchors for their feelings of safety.  While she is known for her work with younger children, Dr. MacNamara was also comfortable talking about deepening relationships with older children and adolescents.  The webinar was focused on a return to school, and yet we found the presentation to be relevant to our daily lives as parents and other important adults for children.  We offer the presentation for those who were unable to attend yesterday, and we respect whatever decision families make at this time.
