Padua Parent Forum

 Padua Parent Forum - “Anxious Kids”

Padua College and the Parent Group warmly invite all parents to a free parent forum with Michael Grose and Dr Jodi Richardson entitled “Anxious Kids” on Wednesday 29 May 2019

The forum will be based on their new book by the same name.  Using evidence-based methods, Michael and Jodi demonstrate the crucial role of parents in managing anxiety such as:

  • How stress and anxiety are contagious, and how your child can “catch” it from you
  • The impact of FOMO – why our kids are always connected, but never more lonely
  • How to explain anxiety to your kids with scripts
  • How to recognise when normal anxiety becomes a disorder
  • How to develop resilience

Michael Grose is one of Australia’s leading parenting and educational writers and speakers.  He is the author of nine books for parents, including the best-selling “Why First-Borns Rule the World”, which has sold more than 23,000 copies.

Dr Jodi Richardson is an expert on anxiety having lived it and studied it.  She has spent more than 25 years in the field of health, wellbeing, clinical practice, elite sport and education.
