• Expert guidance around baby-care skills, breast & bottle feeding, sleep, how to best support your baby’s development and learning, and so much more…

• The opportunity to discuss the experiences of becoming a new parent such as the inevitable physical and emotional changes, the possible shifts in your personal relationships, returning to work (or not), the importance of self-care, and so much more…

Parenting Workshops

Peaceful Parenting

Peaceful Parenting: An Effective, Relationship-Building Approach

 

Are you interested in learning about an evidence-based parenting approach that focuses on creating a life-long emotional connection with your children? Are you tired of feeling horrible after losing your cool with your children?

This online workshop introduces the three components of peaceful parenting which focus on strengthening our relationships with our children rather than controlling their behaviors:

 

Anger Management and Mindful Practices

The Importance of Connected Moments

Effective limit setting skills

 

Participants will have the opportunity to put peaceful parenting in practice with the top 5 challenging behaviors of young children. Helpful resources will be available in addition to time for personal questions.

 

This workshop is appropriate for parents & loving caregivers of newborns to early school-age children.

 

One 1.5-hour virtual session: $35

Sibling Class

Supporting Sibling Relationships

 

“I wish we could return the baby.” “He always gets more than me.” “It’s MINE!” “It’s not my fault, he started it!”

 

If you are a parent or caregiver of more than one child, you have most likely heard a few of these comments shared between siblings. Conflict between siblings may be unavoidable and inevitable but parents can learn simple solutions to gradually improve sibling relationships.

This class will include an overview to spacing, birth order, and temperament, tools to prevent rivalry and jealousy, strategies to build sibling bonding, suggestions how to decrease competition and fights over possessions, and how best to intervene during challenging moments. Helpful resources will be available in addition to time for personal questions.

 

This workshop is appropriate for parents & loving caregivers of children from the newborn period – elementary years.

 

One 1.5-hour virtual session: $35

Toddlers 101

Toddlers 101: Hurting Behaviors, Whining, Tantrums, and Not Listening

 

Are you a parent or caregiver of a soon-to-be toddler and want to be duly prepared for the upcoming toddler years? Or maybe you are already caring for a toddler and feel as if you would benefit from some extra tools in your parenting toolbox to best support your dynamic toddler.

 

In this online workshop, participants will receive an overview of the concept of temperament, typical toddler characteristics and development, and the importance of early brain development. We will address the most common challenging toddler behaviors parents and caregivers struggle with when caring for toddlers: tantrums, hurting behaviors, whining, not listening or sharing. Helpful resources will be available in addition to time for personal questions.

 

This workshop is appropriate for parents & loving caregivers of babies – preschool years.
