As you help your child to develop more emotional intelligence it will naturally lead to less arguing and misbehaviors at home and help them to have stronger relationships throughout their life.

It can be a challenge to help your child feel safe when we are all navigating a new normal and trying to keep up. Children are especially at risk if they have not learned skills to cope with fear and other stressors. Now that children are spending more time with parents, it is particularly important for parents to recognize that we are the filters through which our children see that world. 

After this class you will be able to:

  • Develop perspective during crisis
  • Identify anxiety and stress
  • Define self-regulation and co-regulation and help children to do the same
  • Identify and apply strategies that help both adults and children feel safer even in difficult circumstances.

  • Do you find yourself trying to solve your child's problems?
  • Do you sometimes get into conflict about problems that aren't really yours to solve?
  • Do you wish your child would be more effective at dealing with challenges? 

When you recognize who "owns" a problem, you are able to determine who is responsible for solving a problem. Once you know which problems are yours to solve and which problems are your child's responsibility to solve, life gets a lot easier.

We often fall into conflicts when we try to solve our kids' problems. And it is important to raise children who know how to solve problems. When teens perceive that they are problem solvers, they are less likely to use substances, less likely to harm themselves or others and they are all around more competent.

After this class you will be able to:

identify and apply specific strategies that guide your child to become a problem solver at any age.
