Returning to school anxiety

Supporting Your Child or Toddler Back to School by Dr. Mali Coin is available online at all of the Maxford County Public Library Facebook pages and the Wesford Library YouTube channel.

Dr. Mali Coin is a best-selling author, clinical psychologist, pediatric mental health advocate, NUI Galway educator, and lifelong mentoring counselor.

Anxiety and parenting go hand in hand, especially in times of change, and going back to school after the summer break can bring similar stress to children, teens, and parents.

Join us for an online chat with Dr. Mali Coin, who talks about the stress children face when they return to school, and use her safe compassionate approach to raising your troubled child from his popular book ‘In Love, Loving’ Compassion ‘.

Malim spends time answering questions. Mali’s approach comes from her experience as a very anxious child, her “sometimes” hard-working parent, and her support for children and parents who have been worried for years. It is hoped that you will have some parenting reassurance and some very practical tools to help you and your children.

The Waxford County Council Public Library Service works with the CYPSC (Children and Youth Services Committee) annually to provide Parenting Today for Parent and Parental Annual Free Speech Program throughout Maxford County.
