Many children and teens live in a world that is fast-paced and highly demanding in many spheres: school, social life, and family life. Sometimes the pressure comes from these outside forces, and other times the pressure comes from within.
This webinar will help parents recognize what perfectionism looks like in children and teens and its impact on well being. More importantly, the webinar will show a way out. We will discuss how parents can help and how kids can live a life based on values and choices rather than perfectionism and rules.
