ZOOM: Thriving With Your Spirited Child

  • Thursday, October 7, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Thursday, October 14, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Learn about your child's temperament (and yours), how to develop effective strategies for dealing with temper tantrums, power struggles and other challenging behaviors in this FREE 7-week class series for parents and caregivers.

What makes a spirited child? The key word that distinguishes spirited children from other children is "more" - more intense, more persistent, more sensitive, and more uncomfortable with change. The spirited child can easily overwhelm parents, leaving them feeling frustrated and ineffective. Workshop will focus on helping parents and caregivers:

  • understand a child's temperamental traits,
  • identify cues leading up to challenging behavior,
  • cope with tantrums and blow-ups when they do occur,
  • develop strategies for reducing or eliminating power struggles (especially at mealtime, bedtime, dressing)

Workshop is led by trained facilitators Serena Ward and TBD and meets on (7) Thursdays Oct 7, 14, 21, 28 and November 4, 11 & 18,6:00-7:30pm  [Note: no one may join the class after Oct. 14].
