Change, Change, Change: Managing Transitions at School and Home
Andrea McLaughlin, PhD
The only constant in parenting is change. Children are constantly developing biological, socially and emotionally, leading to tremendous challenges and opportunities at home and school. This workshop provides a framework on what to expect as your child grows and how to successfully navigate critical periods of development.
This workshop will help participants learn and practice skills essential for effective communication, including how to initiate a discussion about a difficult topic and how to avoid the negative communication patterns that lead to emotionally intense arguments. Both individuals and couples are welcome to attend.
