If you are tired of feeling like you are constantly struggling with your child, or tired of feeling like an ineffective parent, if you feel like your parenting strategies are no longer working and that you've "tried everything," or if you're just looking for some new ways to relate to your child, this class is for you!
This workshop will talk about positive discipline strategies which will allow you to feel more effective as a parent while having a stronger relationship with your child. During the class we will talk about understanding the mind of your wild and wonderful toddler; some popular but often ineffective strategies: bribery, rewards, praise and even time-outs. Lastly we'll focus on talking about all those frustrating and challenging parenting moments and ways to incorporate more positive discipline strategies into your daily interactions with your children.
Please note the class will run from 4pm-approximately 6pm.
