Topical Workshops

  • Sibling Tension

    Parents are understandably overwhelmed by sibling tension even though they know that most siblings fight. Siblings can be playing beautifully together and suddenly a huge argument comes from nowhere. The workshop will give everyone present a chance to talk about their family, hear information about why brothers and sisters “pick on” each other and learn practical strategies to help reduce conflict.

    Tuesday, July 8 – 7 – 8:30 PM

  • Resistant Children

    Does your child resist doing things that could be fun and engaging? You are not alone. It is not unusual for children to prefer the comfort of home and familiar routines to new or potentially challenging ideas. This workshop will give everyone present the opportunity to talk about their family while presenting ideas that help parents handle their child’s aversion to new or challenging ideas and activities.

  • Helping an Upset Child
    All children get upset but most parents feel worried or embarrassed when anger, tears or temper tantrums last “too long.” It is often hard to know what to do. This workshop discusses some of the reasons why children have big reactions to little things and presents practical ideas that can help parents respond effectively.
