"Surviving Parenting" Workshop
Sat, 1 April 2017, 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
Are power struggles driving you crazy?
Wayne Dyer said “when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
What if you could see:
power struggles between you and your child in a different way?
beyond the “behaviour” to understand the root causes?
power struggles as a positive normal and healthy part of development?
how power struggles help grow your child’s autonomy, self-esteem, problem solving skills, and self-regulation?
there are ways to respond that help children to learn and grow while still maintaining your authority as the parent and maintain a healthy parent/child attachment?
Join Oakville Parent-Child Centre’s parent educator, Nikki Taylor, for a lively discussion about why children engage us in power struggles, the benefits for our children, and some not-so-common ways to respond that will help optimize your child’s growth and development in the long term.
Child care will be provided for the duration of the workshop (from 3 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.). A pizza dinner will be served at 5 p.m.
Venue: Erindale Presbyterian Church (1560 Dundas Street West, Mississauga).
Cost: Tickets are $10 for individuals (including children) and $25 for famililes. Additional freewill donations are also gladly accepted.
This workshop was planned in partnership between Erindale Presbyterian Church in Mississauga and Knox Presbyterian Church in Oakville.
