Speakers Series #2: Talking with Kids about Scary Stuff
Parents need to know what’s going on in the world. But so much of the news is terrifying--wars, gun violence, wildfires, climate change. How much should we shield children from knowledge of these issues? And when they do hear about scary events, what do we say about it?
Join us for a panel discussion moderated by Terra Toscano, Head of Walden School.
Our panelists are:
Mitesh Parekh, clinical psychologist specializing in children and adolescents. Dr. Parekh’s expertise includes anxiety, depression, disruptive behavior disorders, and attachment.
Margaret "Meg" Bezucha, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, specializes in working with children, adolescents, and families. Her expertise includes anxiety, depression, and trauma. Meg was a teacher for over fifteen years before becoming a therapist.
Kelli Dawn Holsopple, Director of Curriculum at Walden School
