Class Description

If you ever feel like your kids aren't listening to you (let's be honest, we've all been there) this FREE workshop is worth checking out!

"Thinking of your child as 'behaving badly' disposes you to think of punishment. Thinking of your child as 'struggling to handle something difficult' encourages you to help them through their distress."

Be very grateful you started on the process early enough to set them up with the very best educational start.
