As kinship children head out the door for a new school year, caregivers send them out with all the resources and materials they need for a successful year. Unfortunately, in addition to the schoolwork, many children must learn to navigate challenging issues at school involving interactions with other students. These confrontations and negative interactions can have a profound effect on children, often coloring their perception of themselves and their families, and ultimately affecting their overall mental health.

For kinship children, these situations can have an even more significant effect if they have been exposed to previous trauma. Be sure to join us for this important webinar and learn how we can support our children who experience issues related to bullying and other harmful situations at school. Through this session, we will learn how we can help our children to be successful in the new school year!
