Event description

Description

A community event for parents and caregivers of children 5 years and younger.

Let’s Start the Conversation: Discovering Communication & Connection

With Keynote address from Susan Graham, MSW, MA


It’s no secret! If you can communicate and connect with each other and our children - one-on-one or in a group – our ability to guide and influence their behavior skyrockets. Parents who can communicate and connect with their children have better relationships and experience less conflict. During this interactive session the participants will learn their primary communication style and how to best communicate with other styles. Participants will also be introduced to techniques to assist them to have more meaningful conversations and interactions.
