Dear Parents &Guardians,
On Wednesday, November 30th, the CMES School Council hosted the Anxiety Workshop for Parents; those who attended found it quite helpful. Do keep an eye out for similar workshops offered through the Dufferin Parent Support Network (DPSN) in the future.
A couple of helpful websites that were recommended at the workshop were:
Ross Greene’s website for Collaborative Learning http://www.ccps.info/
Anxiety BC has some excellent resources
Please see the attached handouts from the workshop; hopefully they can give you some insights. There are a couple of paper copies of the handouts in the lobby of the school as well. Alternatively, the Dufferin Children and Family Services (dcafs.on.ca) have a free “Talk In” clinic on Tuesdays from 1:00 – 7:00; and there are links to helpful articles on their website under the Support for Parents section.
