Our current health crisis creates daily challenges that many of us have never experienced. Our children can’t easily spend time with their friends. We can’t just stop in at the local pizza place to chill out on a Friday evening. Our daily schedules are both gone and more complicated at the same time. We are facing the challenge of inventing new ways of doing things many times each day. How is your family handling the challenge of creating new ways of coping and thriving? How are you doing at authentically tuning into your own needs and modeling wellness for your kids?
Participants in this class will be able to:
- Recognize the importance of slowing down and changing expectations
- Identify family meeting strategies that suit your family and increase collaboration and cooperation
- Apply approaches that help siblings tolerate each other with kindness
- Apply communication and parenting approaches that focus on optimism, resilience and connection to effectively navigate the new normal as a family.
