Transitions Big and Small: Supporting Kids through Change

Focus is on caregivers of kids in elementary school (grades K-6).

Are you tired of the daily battle of getting your child to transition from one activity to another? Or worried about an upcoming transition in your child’s life? Transitions, big and small, can be really challenging for both kids and caregivers; this is because all transitions involve change, and change can be a time of stress for anyone! In this presentation, you will learn about common transitions that children and youth experience, why transitions are so challenging, and what caregivers can do to make them go more smoothly. More specifically, we will explore how to plan for large transitions, review tips and tools to make small transitions smoother, and discuss strategies for managing the stress and anxiety that can accompany transitions.
