It’s hard to believe, but a new school year is already upon us – meaning opportunities for new friends, new lessons, new obstacles to overcome…and new stresses.

Demanding classes, rigorous sport practices and uncharted social situations present everyday stress and anxiety for children and parents alike, but by establishing healthy habits and routines, moms, dads, and other caregivers can help kids manage back-to-school stress and thrive throughout the year.

We hope that parents, caregivers, coaches and educators to children of any age will join us for 

Children’s Hospital Colorado is hosting a #StressAskUs Social Summit and live panel discussion for parents, caregivers, coaches, and educators on Wednesday, Aug. 31, from 10:00–11:00 a.m. in the hospital’s atrium on the Anschutz Medical Campus (13123 E. 16th Ave. in Aurora) and online via Twitter.

This combination in-person and online event is designed to provide tips for identifying the signs of stress and anxiety, offer tips for talking with your children about stressful situations and feelings, as well as to answer your questions. 

The panel includes:
  • Kyle Dyer, 9News, who will moderate the panel
  • Christine McDunn, Ph.D. psychologist, Children's Hospital Colorado
  • Cody Hudson, MS, CCLS , program assistant child life specialist, Seacrest Studios at Children’s Hospital Colorado
