VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Parenting Without Power Struggles
Jul 15 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

“You need to eat four more pieces!” . . . “Bedtime NOW” . . .  “NO!  I do it!”  If this sounds familiar, you are not alone.  Power struggles are maddening for parents, and, it turns out, not good for children either. Putting these struggles in a developmental context, this workshop will provide strategies for how to encourage your child’s growing need to assert independence while still maintaining your control and authority. Struggles around mealtime, potty training, cooperation and others will be addressed. Led by Claire Lerner, licensed clinical social worker and child development specialist.

Welcoming Jewish Children
Jul 28 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

How do I welcome my baby into the Jewish community? What’s a mohel and how do I find one? How are the welcoming rituals similar and different for boys and girls? When and how do I announce the baby’s name?  Join EDCJCC Children and Families staff Lindsay Kagin and Miriam Szubin — who have welcomed two girl and three boy babies between them — for a virtual workshop on Jewish rituals, traditions, and options for a bris (a Jewish religious male circumcision ceremony) and simchat bat (celebration of a daughter). You’ll walk away with information, resources, and connections to a community of other parents-to-be of Jewish babies.
