Supporting Our Children in Extraordinary Times
The best way to support our children during complex and confusing times is to shape the lessons that they learn from these experiences. In doing so, they will build resiliency that they can draw from throughout their lives. We have the opportunity to inspire our children to build a better world as they lead us into the future.
Dr. Ken Ginsburg, a nationally renowned expert on building resilience, discusses how to strengthen your family during these times and prepare your children to gain critical lifelong skills.
This special community event was produced by JFCS’ Center for Children and Youth, in partnership with the OFJCC in Palo Alto, Osher Marin JCC, and Congregation Emanu-El.
