Drop into one of the “Peaceful Parenting Through the Holidays” sessions for tips and support during this time of  heightened stress.

When: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (ending on Friday, Dec. 18)
Times: Noon – 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. – 5 p.m.

“Peaceful Parenting Through the Holidays” is based on Dr. Laura Markham’s book, Peaceful Parent, Happy  Kids, a relationship and research-based parenting model. Markham’s book teaches three simple, big ideas: 

  1. Regulating Our Emotions as Parents – Our most important responsibility as parents is regulating our  own emotions, which is essential for our children to learn to manage themselves. 

2. Connecting with Your Child – From tantrums to texting, the secret of happy parenting is a close  relationship with your child. 

3. Coaching Instead of Controlling – Coach, instead of trying to control, so your child wants to cooperate  with you. Setting limits with empathy and respect, you’ll find your child is much more likely to  comply.
