Parenting Through the Storm

About this Event

“Having a child who is struggling doesn’t make you a bad parent, just as being a child who is struggling doesn’t make your child a bad kid.” That’s a powerful and reassuring message to hear if you happen to be the parent of a child who is struggling with a mental health challenge. In this encouraging and story-rich presentation, Ann Douglas shares some of her own hard-won wisdom about thriving as a family while weathering one of life’s many storms (the focus of her recent book Parenting Through the Storm). Ann's presentation is based on interviews with more than 50 parents who have walked this walk and who are eager to share their best advice with other parents. Expect a presentation that is kind, encouraging, and real and that leaves you feeling anything but alone.

Ann Douglas sparks conversations that matter about parenting and mental health. She is the weekend parenting columnist for CBC Radio and the author of numerous bestselling books about parenting. She is also the mother of four young adults who struggled with a variety of different mental health, neurodevelopmental, and behavioural challenges during their growing up years — and who are currently thriving as young adults. A passionate and inspiring speaker, Ann delivers keynote addresses and leads small-group workshops at health, parenting, and education conferences across the country.
