Two early childhood webinars to teach coping skills for young children
The Glenbard Parent Series: (GPS) Navigating Healthy Families will present Social Skills and Anxiety Solutions for the Early Child: Start Strong with Janine Halloran at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31, via Zoom. Go to for the link to these two webinars. To be placed on a reminder list for GPS events or submit a question in advance, send an email to [email protected].

A child’s social and emotional skills in kindergarten might be the biggest predictor of success in adulthood. However, many young children have a hard time handling their emotions. Coping mechanisms help young people with these struggles. This early child webinar will expand upon the skills children have in place to help them handle strong feelings and will share a foundation designed to assist young children in developing skills that work for them, so they can interact with others in a healthy, happy way. 

Halloran is a licensed mental health counselor who has been working primarily with children and adolescents for more than 15 years. She is an author and entrepreneur, who has developed businesses to support families and professionals who work with children and teens. 

GPS is generously sponsored by the Cebrin Goodman Center, Community Consolidated School District 93 Birth to 5 Community Coalition, Cooperative Association for Special Education (CASE), College of DuPage, DuPage Medical Group, Emmy Gaffey Foundation, Glenbard Early Childhood Collaborative, Kiwanis Clubs of District 9, and Prevention Leadership Team of the DuPage County Health Department.
