Upcoming Workshops + Events
Learn a fun, easy technique to improve connection with your baby while providing a healthful, stimulating, and calming experience. Massage helps babies relax, leading to better sleep and resolution of common infant digestive issues. Working parents find this a great way to “reconnect” with children after work, and it’s a great platform to build a lifelong ability to communicate with children and help them feel strong and comfortable in their bodies. Please bring a blanket for the baby to lie on and a toy, if needed, for comfort. Oils and written handouts will be provided. With Susan Theobald, LCSW. [Parent/Child Activity Groups][For Expectant & New Parents][For Parents of Infants & Toddlers: Birth through Preschool]
Do you often feel your child is just “more” than others his age?  Do you describe her to others as “challenging” or “intense?”  This workshop can help you understand your child’s unique temperamental qualities and rise to the special challenges of parenting a strong-willed child.  You will develop realistic developmental expectations and learn about setting appropriate boundaries for the child who sometimes requires “more,” as well as using structured limit-setting techniques and delivering positive rewards.  With Susan Byrd, LCSW.   [For Parents of Infants & Toddlers: Birth through Preschool][For Parents of Elementary School Aged Kids]
Acquire a developmental understanding of how best to support your little ones and preserve your sanity!  We will talk about setting limits, guiding behavior, developing social skills, understanding tantrums, and more.  With Bonnie Romanow, BA, childhood development specialist.  [For Parents of Infants & Toddlers: Birth through Preschool]
