Anxiety is contagious, bouncing back and forth between you and your child. What if she's not living up to your dreams and expectations? What if she's not growing into her potential?

How do you ramp down your anxiety and hers? How can you keep your relationship intact?

Join Fern Weis, Parent Coach, and Jessica Bush of Tutor Doctor for discussion, learning and coaching.

You will learn: * to recognize the pressures that affect your mood, and theirs * to consider what dreams and goals are realistic and healthy * strategies to manage and alleviate anxiety * how to increase trust so your child feels safe confiding in you
