Topic: Tools to Help Children Cope with Changes Due to COVID-19
Presented by: Monica Kramer McConkey | Eyes on the Horizon Consulting
Summary: The pandemic has taken a toll on all of us, but our children have had unique challenges. From online schooling, to added screen time, to isolation, the pandemic could have long-term effects on our kids’ mental health. Monica will help us identify those challenges, provide tools for helping kids cope and teach us how to have conversations with our kids and how they are feeling.

Recorded Webinar
Finding Balance During a Stressful Time
Presented by: 
Becky Allen | Win the Day Productions
As life begins to resume, it seems our world is being turned back ‘on’ as quickly and it was turned ‘off’. With so much drastically changed in our lives over the last year, how do we re-engage with our demands, set boundaries and manage overwhelm? Tune in to discuss how to keep what we’ve learned, eliminate what no longer serves us and build a life we are proud to show up for. 

**Registration includes access to the live webinars and/or the recordings. All webinars are presented live and are always recorded so you can view it at a time that better suits you.**
