Parent Workshop Offered Tips on Thriving Not Surviving

Parents with children from across the divisions joined the special parent webinar, ‘Summoning Resilience and Finding Grace’ by Dr Fran Prolman last Tuesday. The internationally renowned education leadership consultant gave the UNIS Hanoi community a personalized session designed to help parents recognize the multitude of emotions they and their families may be going through at any one time, as well as tips on how to make Distance Learning work for students. She advised parents to reframe expectations and be kind to themselves.

Fran conducted polls with the audience, asking them to identify how well they felt they were coping. This was followed by questions from participants.
