Tantrums happen a lot when children are young and we’d all like to know what we can do to help. This class will help you to understand why your kid’s anger, sadness, or disappointment can cause meltdowns, what you can do to help while meltdowns are happening, and how to help them happen less.

A better relationship with your child starts with helping them to understand and talk about their own feelings and the feelings of others.

Your child may be struggling with anxiety. And you may feel frustrated and helpless. You are not alone. One in three children will experience an anxiety disorder before adulthood.

You don't have to go it alone. Being able to recognize the behavior as symptoms and having a clear plan about how to invite cooperation and respond to challenging behaviors will reduce your family stress and strengthen your child's positive behavior. Join with other parents facing similar struggles and create a plan that will work for your family. At the end of this class you will be able to:

This class will help you recognize the difference between rules and consequences, and punishment. You will also gain 5 practical strategies to teach better behavior to your tween or teen.

We hope our children will make healthy choices, form lasting, meaningful connections, and develop a strong, positive sense of self. In other words, we want them to thrive!
