Parents sometimes feel discouraged when their children want more toys, the newest technology or the coolest sneakers that they believe will make them really happy. And maybe those things will work…for a few hours or a couple of days. What really makes our kids happy? How often do we get caught up in what media tells us will bring joy into our lives?

Research tells us that “things” don’t really make us happy. While temperament is inborn, parents can actually help children increase optimism (positive outlook and hopefulness) and resilience (ability to effectively bounce back from challenges). These capacities are strongly connected to well-being and success. You will examine your day to day interactions and consider approaches that will increase these important traits in yourself and your children. You will also gain the courage to set limits on “stuff” and focus on what counts in building a happy family.

Little Kids, Big Emotions: Help Young Children Thrive

The emotions center of your young child’s brain is developing faster than the thinking part of their brain. That is why they sometimes get swamped with emotions and have unreasonable meltdowns. Your young child needs your calm energy to help their overwhelmed brain calm down. You have probably already noticed that timeouts, threats and punishments really don’t help and actually often make things worse. So how do we help young children manage their emotions and their behavior? This series of classes will help you:

  • Recognize the importance of developing practices to calm your brain when your child is upset
  • Apply effective strategies to reduce and respond to tantrums and help your child manage their emotions
  • Create routines and apply positive discipline approaches that support cooperation in young children

Parent stress has dramatically increased since the start of the pandemic, but children’s essential needs haven’t really changed. Parents are less stressed when they recognize myths that may cause family conflict and understand what’s most important to help raise thriving, cooperative children. And, good news, kids are more cooperative when they feel positively connected with their parents. This live online class will help you understand and apply:

  • Communication skills that build strong parent-child connections
  • Parent behaviors that help kids cope with stress and develop self-control
  • Effective discipline approaches that reduce misbehavior and increase cooperation.
