A Class for Parents of Young Children
Facilitated by Elizabeth Walker, PhD
We are all navigating uncharted territory right now. As parents of young children, many of us are finding ourselves struggling to help our little ones feel secure, entertained, and attended to while juggling multiple other responsibilities. It can seem impossible to fill up your child’s “attention tank,” which leads to whining and misbehavior.
In this class, I will teach simple play skills you can use daily to get more “bang for your buck” out of playtime and turn even the grumpiest toddler into a happy little camper. The class will begin with an explanation of play skills and end with a demonstration of these skills with my very own grumpy toddler. All are welcome to join in this free course, but the strategies are most applicable for children ages one to seven.
*Please note: This class is intended to provide education and should not be considered to represent psychological treatment.
The session will be conducted via Go To Meeting. Links will be emailed in advance of the class start time. There is no charge for the session, but advanced registration is required. If you do not see your links by class time, please check your spam and/or junk folder!
