​In this time of uncertainty, we are all on edge and maybe overwhelmed with the constant change in information and response to the corona vitrus. It is unsettling for all of us, including our children. How do we share developmentally appropriate information, how do we reassure, especially when we are sure ourselves, how do we comfort and support as we listen and respond to our children’s questions and concerns. Join us for this live 90 minute conversation on ideas for preparing and calming ourselves as we share with our children. We’ll talk about the what and how for children of different ages- toddler through adolescents- how we can listen to the “real questions” being asked, how we understand what is being communicated by a child’s behavior. We invite questions, comments, and contributions from all those particpating on the webcast. Together we can give and receive the information and support we are all needing right now as we make sure our children are supported and comforted. Remember, we store videos of all of our webcasts and much more in the International Montessori Council member’s resource center. If you or your school are not members yet, you should look into it. https://www.montessori.org/the-international-montessori-council-imc/
