Even in the best family and school environments things happen that can cause a child to experience fear and anxiety – a death in the family, natural disaster, or just kids being mean. And many children experience severe trauma from physical and emotional abuse or neglect.
4C for Children works with parents, teachers and caregivers so they can help children develop the tools and abilities they need to thrive. The organization recently held its regional conference with the theme, Grow the Good: Nurturing the Roots of Resiliency.
Joining us to discuss the nurturing and guidance young children need to succeed in life and how to address childhood trauma are 4C for Children President and CEO Vanessa Freytag and Strategic Director of Family & Community Services, Carolyn Brinkman; and Life is Good Kids Foundation Founder and Chief Playmaker, Steve Gross.
