VIRTUAL: PARENTING WITHOUT POWER STRUGGLES
Tuesday, March 21, 8:00 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.
How does a child become a life-long reader? What can parents do to foster pre-literacy and early literacy skills? When and how should children be learning to read? Parents of preschoolers often find these questions very stressful, but they don’t have to be! Join early literacy expert Lynn Klaiman for a practical and reassuring virtual discussion about how to start and support your child on their journey towards a lifelong love of reading. Intended for parents of 0-5 year olds, but all are welcome.
