Connected Parenting: Strategies for Parenting Young Children

Tuesday, May 1 | 10:00 - 11:30 am

Youth Program Room

Strategies for Parenting Young Children In our highly competitive, over-scheduled culture, we often have expectations of our children that they are not cognitively or physically ready to meet. Understanding where our children are developmentally and meeting them there is essential to successfully guide our children through their early years. During this session, we will discuss how to motivate desired behaviors, minimize overly emotional responses, and develop a strong sense-ofself in our children. This session primarily explores how to connect with children between 1 and 5 years old, but parents, grandparents and caregivers of children at any age can benefit. 

Registration is required. Children are welcome to attend. Flyer Here!

Registration for programs takes place at the Youth Services Desk in person or by calling 262-754-1814. In the event that we need to close registration, our waiting list policy is to take children/families on a first-come, first-serve basis at the beginning of the program. Sign in with a Youth Services librarian and we will notify you if there is room available. If you register for a program and cannot attend, please let library staff know. For all programs, please arrive before the program begins. We reserve the right to refuse admittance once a program has begun. We appreciate your cooperation.
