Anxiety and Judaism: the two seem to go hand in hand.  Do Jewish parents worry more?  Is this a myth or stereotype?  Should we worry that anxiety levels in children have increased dramatically in the last few years? In today’s complicated world it is difficult for parents to navigate their child’s development.  Is it just a stage?  Is it normal, typical behavior, or a point of concern?  When is intervention necessary and when is it appropriate to let them work it out on their own? This interactive session will focus on ways to know if your child’s struggles are a sign of temporary distress or the beginnings of problems that will affect their overall mental health in the future.  Parents will walk away with an increased understanding of when to intervene and when to allow their child to overcome the hurdles of growing up in today’s stressful world.
