Are you looking for a safe space to share challenges? Find support and validation? Pick up skills that will build your resilience and help you to get through the holiday season? 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:
- 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.
