Taming the Worry Monster at Practical Parenting
It's natural for children to worry at times, and some may worry more than others. Some worries are more likely to occur at certain developmental stages or in certain situations. Learn how to help your child (and when you may need to seek professional guidance) at Practical Parenting: Taming the Worry Monster on Monday, January 14, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. Our guest speakers will be Sarah Cable and Kathryn Thompson. Both are advanced graduate students in the UAB Medical/Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program. You do not have to sign up for this event. Simply follow the stars through the Kid Zone to our Youth Program Room.
