Toilet Training Without Tears: Avoiding the Perils of the Potty
Nov 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The toilet training process should not and does not have to be fraught with conflict or worse, shame. This workshop will address ways to approach toilet learning in a way that is developmentally appropriate and respectful to the child’s growing need to feel in control of his or her body, and that frees parents from unnecessary stress and anxiety.  The workshop will also address ways to manage typical challenges that arise during the process.

Parenting Without Power Struggles
Jan 15 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

“You need to eat four more pieces!” . . . “Bedtime NOW” . . .  “NO!  I do it!”  Power struggles are maddening for parents, and 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, a licensed clinical social worker and child development specialist.
