On 06/03/2020, Park Slope Parents asked Dr. Mandi White-Ajmani to lead a Mental Health Check-In for parents of elementary school children. Mandi’s webinar talked through the common challenges that kids 5-10 years old might be facing, as well as how to manage them. These included:

  1. Kids are clingy
  2. Kids are regressing
  3. Kids aren’t socializing
  4. Kids are sassy, defiant, and explosive
  5. Kids are on technology all the time!

Questions addressed from attendees included issues about sibling fighting, how parents can de-escalate, getting work done with kids in the house, being flexible, and engaging in self-care.
