If your kid has ever "lost it" over something – or nothing! – this workshop is for you. Come learn strategies you can use the next time something shockingly awful – like when you did something for a child who wanted to “do it myself,” or you offered the “wrong” color shirt-- leads to crying, screaming, or fist-pounding tantrums. During this experiential, fun workshop, you will practice helpful skills with other calm adults before returning to the challenges of raising actual children. $45. With Julie King, Parent Educator.
