How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen (Online Class) - Private Twins and Triplets

February 22nd – March 22nd  (Mondays) 6:30pm -8:30pm

*This class will be presented through an online ZOOM platform, accessible by computer or cell phone. Space is limited to 14 participants.

How do you respond to the toddler who won’t brush his teeth? The preschooler who pinches the baby? The child who throws everything she can reach? It’s hard to be a little kid. It’s hard to be an adult responsible for that little kid. And it’s really hard to think about effective communication when the toast is burning, the baby is crying and you’re exhausted. Help is on the way. Join us for this five week program to navigate and thrive in these important years. Ideal for parents/caregivers of children ages 2 – 6 years old.

*This class is a private offering for twins and triplets.
