Stress in Young Children: How Little Bodies are Affected

Children living with a lot of stress often exhibit dramatic behaviors and can be challenging to teach. What happens when a child is under stress? What can we do about it? Join us for an evening with Robin Henle, Public Health Nurse from the Benton-Franklin Health District. She will be talking with us about negative experiences that impact a child’s growth and development and how we can help children regain their internal calm.
