NYC-Parents in Action recently hosted a substantive and important online seminar, "It's Ok To Say Suicide: Talking With Your Kids About Hard Things," moderated by our own Dr. Laurie Freeman and featuring Dr. Laura Erickson-Schroth and John MacPhee of the JED Foundation.
Our speakers covered a wide range of topics, starting with a couple of sobering facts:
Drug overdose and suicide are the first and second leading causes of death among young people."
"The rates of self-harm and suicide started to change in 2010-11 after the rise in popularity of social media."
Given the importance of supporting our children's mental and emotional well-being, we are offering our community a chance to register for and receive a link to the recorded event. We encourage everyone in the community who may have missed it to watch. Recording is available until November 27th.
*This live event has now passed, but if you pay the registration fee, you will be emailed the recording.*
Strapping our kids securely into the passenger seat of life may help us feel better as parents, but it isn't doing anything to help them forge an independent future for themselves. Free play and exploration is the vitamin of childhood, and Lenor Skenazy, Co-founder and President, Let Grow, is ready to help us step back and allow our children to step up.
