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