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!
