Parenting is hard work: sometimes no matter how hard we try, it can still be a struggle. Though every child is different, universal principles exist that can still help many parents feel empowered and able to work collaboratively with their children to create family cohesion, no matter their unique situation.
This introductory learning workshop provides an overview of these principles, and will help parents:
Enhance the parent-child relationship
Develop simple and meaningful emotional language accompanied with visuals that both parents and children can use to express and understand their emotions
Learn practical strategies for both children and parents that will enable them to manage their emotions and avoid potential meltdowns
Practice simplified reinforcement strategies to promote positive behavior proactively
Take home tangible resources to use with their children
Join us for an in-depth discussion of these topics and more.
A light supper will be provided. Limited childcare is available. Please register early to reserve your spot.
