Big Conversations with Little People: Parenting in Challenging Times Recording

On Thursday, January 14th, the DFPL partnered with Springhurst Elementary School to host a talk from local clinical psychologist, parenting coach, speaker, and author Dr. Rebecca Hershberg. She is the founder of Little House Calls, which helps parents and caregivers create calmer homes and more connected families. A former Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Hershberg has been published widely on the topic of early childhood mental health. Her first book, The Tantrum Survival Guide, was published in October, 2018.”

In “Big Conversations with Little People,” we discussed a range of topics, including how best to package information for children of different ages, how to include children in conversations around difficult and complicated topics, how to offer reassurance and comfort to children who are anxious, and how to manage both our own and our children’s big feelings during this time.
