From stomachaches and bitten nails to all-night study sessions, kids display anxiety in a variety of ways. However, not all anxiety is bad.
The Family Institute at Northwestern University is pleased to announce 'Straight A's & Stressed: Navigating Childhood, Teen and Young Adult Anxiety', a presentation that will take place on April 10, Thursday, at Exmoor Country Club in Highland Park, to address these issues.
During this event, Danielle Black, director of the Child & Adolescent program, will help parents differentiate between normal worry for our children, teenagers and young adults as they face the pressures of school, sports and socializing, and more severe anxiety symptoms that may be signs of a larger issue. She will also explore how anxiety can be turned into a positive thing that can help your kids become successful.
