About This Class

Overwhelmed with your child’s challenging behaviors? 

Hoping for more patience and struggling to stay calm? 

Think sometimes there must be a better way? 

You are not alone. 

We are built to reflect each other's emotions. When children display intense feelings and behaviors, our brains naturally reflect those. We start to feel stressed, angry, or overwhelmed just like our kids. Young children thrive in calm and playful families. Play is the best way to help your child learn and grow. It strengthens the parent-child connection, your child’s love of learning, and enthusiasm for life. Play builds social skills and improves cooperation. Learn practical tools to help you be a calm center for your family and use the power of play to signal safety and set the stage for cooperation and joy.

After this class, you will be able to:

  • Apply simple calming strategies to use every day and during challenging times
  • Recognize the ways play helps your child grow, connect and cooperate
  • Apply everyday, simple ways of engaging in happy and meaningful play with your child
