Every 2nd Tuesday of the month, 6-8 p.m.Learn how to master those difficult parenting challenges. Parent educators facilitate discussions on specific topics as your children enjoy supervised play in the museum!
Consequences; the myth of being in control. As parents we often feel if we could just find the right consequence, reward or punishment we could regain control and peace in our home. We will discuss effectiveness and pitfalls of consequences and rewards and alternatives that will work for your family.
Sensory Child. There are more than the five senses we learned about in school. Some children’s behaviors maybe sensory processing challenges rather than intentional meanness or bad behavior. Learn about all our senses and how they are processed in our brain. Share sensory strategies and ways to help your child when their sensory system is not functioning smoothly.
Emotional intelligence: Who’s got it, how to develop it and why you want it. Emotional Intelligence is important for good social skills, relationships and self esteem. Learn what it is and how to foster it in your family and when to bring it to bear on problems. This will be an interactive, participatory and problem solving class.
Getting Kids to Listen. At the end of your rope? Yelling all the time? Feel like your kids are running away not coming to you? We’ll teach and talk strategies to talk you in off the ledge and help you be heard.
