Upcoming Workshops + Events
Want to have more harmony at home and less yelling? Most parents agree that yelling isn’t beneficial, but many report that they just don’t know what to do when their children misbehave. Learn to create a plan—and more—to address the issues that trigger yelling. One recent participant shared, “Rona’s class goes beyond the standard suggestions of deep breaths and removing yourself from the room. She helped me think about the negative thought patterns I get caught in that fuel my yelling.” With Rona Renner, RN, expert parent educator, temperament counselor, and author of the book, Is That Me Yelling?

Young children can quickly and easily become overwhelmed by strong feelings that lead to aggression. As a parent, you can find it mortifying to watch your child behave aggressively and not know how to intervene. During this workshop, you will acquire strategies to prevent, manage, and respond to aggressive behaviors, including biting, hitting, and grabbing toys. With Bonnie Romanow, BA, Childhood Development Specialist. [For Parents of Infants & Toddlers: Birth through Preschool][For Parents of Elementary School Aged Kids]
  The activity level of boys often requires a different approach for discipline.  This interactive class will explore problem-solving strategies that will communicate both clear limits and love.  Discover how setting effective limits can be an opportunity for both you and your son to grow, learn, and thrive.  With Tom Limbert, MA, Parent Educator.
