I am Michelle Frygier and I am the Parent Mentor for Geauga County through the ESC of the Western Reserve. A unique aspect of this position is that Parent Mentors provide guidance based on a combination of training and personal first-hand experience. I am also a parent of a child with a disability and I know it can be overwhelming and confusing at times and this is when the Parent Mentor can assist and offer some support and information.
PARENT MENTOR FAMILY SERIES on April 26, 2021 from 6pm - 7:30pm
In collaboration with Ravenwood Health, I am excited to announce a special program "Restoring Resilience & Developing Strategies for Success!" on April 26, 2021 presented by Natalie Smith, LISW-S, CTP.
Let’s face it. This year has been challenging. If you are feeling stressed it is ok! Our bodies are reacting to the chronic stress of a year long global pandemic. I hope you will join me as we learn about the ways in which the pandemic has affected both parents and children. We will discuss ways in which the stress and anxiety of the pandemic can be used as a catalyst to foster positive changes, growth and resilience! Several strategies for managing stress and anxiety for all age levels of children as well as adults will be learned.
