She is the author of 28 books, including The Mother of All Pregnancy Books, The Mother of All Baby Books and her latest book, Parenting Through the Storm. She speaks at health, parenting, work-life, and motherhood conferences and makes regular appearances in the media on topics ranging from the journey to parenthood to parenting and pop culture. Ann is the mother of four children, ages 13 through 22. She and her family live in Peterborough, Ontario.
Parenting Through The Storm: Coping strategies for parents who have a child who is struggling with a mental, neurodevelopmental, or behavioural challenge. Topics to be discussed include coping with worry, when to act, where to turn for information and support, and self-care.
Register today and be entered to win 1 of 20 signed copies of Ann Douglas’ newly released book “Parenting Through the Storm”.
This presentation is based on interviews with more than 50 parents who have walked this walk – as well as Ann’s own experience – and who are eager to share their best advice with other parents. These interviews formed the basis for Ann’s latest book, Parenting Through the Storm: How to Handle The Highs, The Lows, and Everything In-Between — a book for parents who have a child who is struggling with a neurodevelopmental, mental health or behavioural challenge. This is a free community event presented by Morneau Shepell’s Children’s Support Solutions.
