“Parenting During a Pandemic,” A CSP Benefit
May 3, 2020 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm$25 – $4000
For over 30 years, Greenwich House Children’s Safety Project, has been a resource and support for families and children in trauma. On April 22nd, we had planned a key fundraising luncheon to support the critical work of our team of therapists at CSP, caring for vulnerable children and their families. While the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled our fundraising plans, CSP’s work needs to continue as we field referrals and take on new clients, all while working remotely.
We need your help. If you had planned to support the luncheon, please consider making your donation today and join us for a special event.
In lieu of the luncheon Katherine Reynolds Lewis, our friend and speaker from last year, award-winning author of The Good News About Bad Behavior, will host a webinar called From Crisis to Contribution: Parenting During the Pandemic.
At the beginning of the pandemic, families were in survival mode: scrambling to adapt to online learning, working from home, and managing unexpected anxiety and health needs. Now we need more than to survive — we need to thrive. This workshop covers the essential parenting tools for enlisting children in family decisions, household life and routines fundamental to physical and mental health.
Author and parent educator Katherine Reynolds Lewis will share a research-grounded method for moving children from the unstructured, screen-time overload of those early weeks into a more sustainable set of habits — without guilt, yelling or additional stress. Not only will you free up time in your day, your children will develop a sense of purpose that helps build the resilience they’ll need to weather these tough times. This talk covers attuning to children’s emotions, age-appropriate chores, ways to win cooperation, stress management strategies and the mistakes you should avoid when setting up new healthy routines.
Your donation will give you access to the webinar. A link to the webinar will be sent to the email address you provide with your donation.
Please join us on May 3rd at 8:30pm. For those who cannot make that time slot, the webinar will be available for another 5 days online.
