Turning Power Struggles into Problem Solving

All Grades Parent Education
 
Parenting is not an easy task, especially when it comes to motivating our children to do things they don't want to do. They simply would rather do something else! This is why we may nag, beg, and demand; however, with limited results. In our engaging workshop, we will empower ourselves and our children with practical skills for bedtime, chores, mornings, and more. We will learn to create a climate for cooperation.

Nurturing Sexual Intelligence in Our Children

All Grades Parent Education

Does your heart race when your child asks you questions about sex? You are not alone! Many parents and caregivers struggle to come up with age-appropriate answers to sexuality-related questions. Whether questions are triggered by a loved one's pregnancy, media messages, playground conversations, or natural curiosity, your child needs authentic answers to develop the knowledge and skills required for self-care. Learn how to welcome - rather than dread - your child's questions as an opportunity to strengthen your relationship with you child, introduce facts and values, encourage critical thinking, and nurture the sexual intelligence they need to navigate healthy relationships throughout life.

Taming Your Child's Tantrums and Meltdowns

TK - 5th Grade Parent Education

Are your kids having a hard time managing their big feelings? Is it difficult to get them to listen and follow directions? The good news is that we can teach our kids specific tools to help them calm down and self-regulate. By building their emotional awareness, ability to communicate, and their overall emotional intelligence (EQ), we can reduce tantrums and manage power struggles. Research shows that kids with high EQ earn better grades, stay in school longer, and make healthier choices overall. Practical hands-on tips and strategies will be reviewed and practiced.

Preparing Positively for Puberty

TK- 8th Grade Parent Education
 
We can prepare our children for puberty by teaching them what to expect as their bodies transition from childhood to adulthood. Learn how to break down "the big puberty talk" into tiny talks that are more comfortable for both caregivers and children. Participants will review resources such as books and websites that can simplify the process of starting a tiny talk. Activities that can promote a positive and practical attitude toward this important life stage will be discussed.
