Growing Up Wired is presented as part of Community Compass's Super Tuesdays. This session will explore the impact of technology and social media on our children's lives. We'll look at specific tools, research and tips to guide you through the multimedia landscape.

Breaking the Cycle of Anxiety is a special presentation of Alberta Health Services for parents and caregivers living in the west end of the school division. This adult-only session will help attendees distinguish between normal anxiety and anxiety that is no longer helpful or productive in both children and teens, allowing caregivers to identify signs that a child or adolescent is experiencing problems with anxiety. Caregivers will gain step-by-step strategies to assist their child/teen to manage their anxiety and improve their mental health. Resources for parents will be provided as well as tools designed to reduce anxiety.

Join us for an in-depth discussion of these topics and more.
