Event description

Description

Are power struggles with your child leaving you annoyed or exhausted? Are you wondering why your child just can’t seem to listen? Are your own frustrations spilling over at home? Every child has off-track moments—refusing to brush his teeth, being rough with the family pet, ignoring instructions, pestering her sibling. With conventional limit-setting techniques, these kinds of smaller difficulties can sometimes escalate into mounting stress on all sides. Whether you’re simply seeking fresh ideas, or you and your child are locked in a mystifying struggle, this workshop will provide insights and strategies to help you set firm, warm limits in a way that connects you and your child and fosters cooperation in your family. You’ll discover why limits are vital to young people and you’ll learn a three-step method that will help you say “no” without anger and shaming. This workshop is designed for parents and caregivers of children eight and under.

Childcare provided with advance reservation.

Food Provided.

Free Parking in lot on Doyle St.
