Little Kids, Big Transitions: What Really Helps

Learning to use the potty and entering kindergarten are two important transitions that can be stressful for both parents and children. You and your child will have a much easier time with both of these big changes when you know what to expect and have a plan. Parents who view these classes will be able to:

  • Recognize the challenges young children face in managing emotions
  • Recognize signs of readiness in your child and in yourself to start the potty training process
  • Identify activities you can use to help your child prepare for a new school experience
  • Apply effective strategies that support your child to be successful at potty training 
  • Apply effective strategies that will help your child be ready to enter kindergarten with less stress
