September 30th – October 28th  (Wednesdays) 6:30pm -8:30pm

*This class will be presented through an online ZOOM platform, accessible by computer or cell phone. Space is limited to 16 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 – 7 years old.
