Seminar Topic: The Importance of Calmness, Silence and Stillness in Children's Lives

It is so challenging for modern parents to create calmness, silence and stillness in their homes but it is an important and inspirational life resilience skill for children to develop. In this seminar, you will learn about the main causes of childhood stress, anxiety and disruptive behaviour and what you can do to prevent it. She will also address the key concerns of adolescent stress. Maggie will explore ways to calm nervous systems, homes and schools. Calmness can be learned! This seminar explores stress in today's world and ways to reduce it and is full of practical tips to take away.
