About this class:
WORKSHOP FOR PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN:
Do you often find yourself becoming more emotional or stressed because of your own child’s emotions? Do you feel at times no matter what you do your child will keep screaming or crying for no reason until they feel like they get their way? During this time together we will break the surface to look into why children may be reacting with the emotions they express. Then we will learn skills that will help you to work with your child (or students, if you’re a teacher) to process and express their feelings in a healthy way. A pen and paper is the only required material for this, to allow you to take notes. Otherwise, come with your struggles and open minds, ready for discussion!
