September 29th – October 27th  (Tuesdays) 9:30am -11:30am

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 – 7 years old.
