The Rainbow District School Board is inviting parents or guardians to join a webinar on Parenting for Positive Mental Health.
Communication manager Nicole Charette says as part of Children’s Mental Health Week, the webinar will be presented by an expert focusing on connection and setting limits.
She says it will be presented by Amanda Lamb, Director of the Centre for Family Initiatives at the Pine River Institute on Thursday, May 5th from 7 pm to 8 pm.
Charette says teachers will also access links to social media posts, activities, videos, quizzes, articles and classroom discussion prompts organized by age group.

With a focus on attunement, connection and setting limits, organizers say the webinar will help parents/guardians understand their children’s behaviours and development to respond with intention and promote mental wellness and growth. Participants will gain an understanding of their parenting style and the challenges parents/guardians face when children push back.
Lamb brings a deep commitment to the well-being of youth and their families through empathy, acceptance, compassion, positive communication and relationships. She says she hopes that by educating and supporting families early on, they can foster greater resilience and sustain their mental wellness through difficult times, including life transitions.
