PreSchoolers, Parenting And A Plan!
Trust me, it works better than winging it...
Would you feel frustrated if your boss was ill-prepared, yet expected you to succeed?
Would it feel confusing to work with someone who operates mostly through emotion and reaction, rather than through forethought and reflection?
Ever been on a team with someone who rarely practiced, but blew up when the team did poorly?
These are examples of situations we, as parents, expect our children to deal with all the time...with us! Not because we don't care or want to do better, but because we are overwhelmed and under-trained for the most important job of our lives: parenting. Parenting young children can be easier with a plan. And it feels better for our children, too!
Join Alison Bower to learn practical tools and approaches based in research that will empower you to be the parent you want to be....and build community in the process!

What To Expect:
- Week One: You'll learn about your own style as a parent, understand your goals and practice strategies to get started on the road to building healthy relationships with your children RIGHT NOW.
- Week Two: You'll learn how to become an effective communicator at home and through school for your children in a way that builds trust and respect for all members of the family.

All class sessions are experiential in nature, fun, and include skills that you can practice and apply immediately in your home. This is useful, interactive time, not a lecture series! And? You will be creating community in the process, because really, there is no better resource than other parents who are available and supportive.
