Schools all over Ireland are reopening this week. It’s a really anxious time for parents and children as there has been a lot of uncertainty about when and how schools will cope with the new academic year. The 2020-21 school environment will be very different from what it looked like before the lockdown. School schedules, class sizes, classroom layout and socialising with other classmates will be very different. So how should parents prepare their children for the academic year ahead? What routines should parents and children develop for the year ahead? What can parents do to reduce anxiety levels for both their children and themselves?
Join us at this special event for parents where Richard Hogan – Family Psychotherapist, Author of “Parenting the Screenager, a practical guide for parents of the modern child“, and mental Health & Wellbeing Expert for Ireland AM and The Hard Shoulder on Newstalk will share practical advice and tips for managing yourself and your child for the school year ahead.
