Roundtable discussion on separation anxiety offered for Purdue parents

June 14, 2010

WorkLife Programs invites parents to attend a roundtable discussion on separation anxiety, led by Judith Myers-Walls, associate professor of child development and family studies.

"Parent Roundtable: Being Together, Being Apart: Separation Anxiety in Children and in Parents" will be at 12:10-12:50 p.m. June 23 in Room 112, Purdue Memorial Union.

This roundtable provides an opportunity for working parents to share questions about interacting and communicating with their children on everyday issues and validate the best approach with an expert.

Parenting is a very long process of letting go, and it can be hard on both children and parents. Myers-Walls will lead a discussion about sources of normal separation anxiety, when to be concerned, and ways to reduce anxiety in both children and parents.

To register for this roundtable or another offering, go to www.purdue.edu/worklife and log in with your career account and password, or call WorkLife Programs at 49-45461.
