RE: Explaining War and Global Conflict to Young Children


Bright Horizons offers a free parenting series, with a new topic every month. The Bright Horizons family webinar, How to Talk About Gender Identity and Inclusion, originally scheduled for Thursday, March 24, has been rescheduled for June 9 at 11:30am. A reminder will be sent out closer to the date.

A *new* live webinar has been scheduled in its place this week: Explaining War and Global Conflict to Young Children

Date: Thursday, March 24, 2022

Time: 10:00am

Description: When war and military events occur in our world, we are all impacted - including our children. How do we answer young children's difficult questions about war? How do we keep our children emotionally safe while also encouraging them to be empathetic, compassionate, socially aware individuals? How should we respond when children act out violent themes and war in their play? In this webinar childhood experts will tackle these questions and more with Bright Horizons. 

If you'd like to join the event, please use the registration link below and make sure that you wait to be redirected to Bright Horizons. Registering will also give you access to the webinar on-demand, shortly after the live event.
