Love and Limits Parenting the Young Child
Monday April 15, 7 - 8:30 pm
Pioneer Room Manson’s Hall


*How do we define healthy roles in the parent-child relationship?
(Who is the boss…..should there be a boss?)

*How can knowledge of child development help us parent?
(Is this just a phase…and when will it end?)

*How can clear communication inspire co-operation without the use of fear, shame,
or constant negotiation?

*How do boundaries and consistency help to build confidence, security and eventual independence in children?

* How can we use connection, not separation to address challenging behavior?

We will focus on:
The Attachment Relationship
Child Development (0-7 years)
Rhythm, Routine and Consistency
Logical Consequences and Creative Discipline
Communication/Clarity

This evening will be of interest to parents of children 0-7 years old.
