Parenting Center Workshop: Parenting Without Power Struggles (July 2019)
$47; Discounted Member Rate $32 (prices include a $2 service charge)
Led by Claire Lerner, L.C.S.W.-C
In partnership with Mary’s Center – a local organization dedicated to building better futures through the delivery of health care, education, and social service.
"You need to eat four more pieces!" . . . "Bedtime NOW" . . . "NO! I do it!" If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. Power struggles are maddening for parents, and, it turns out, not good for children either. Putting these struggles in a developmental context, this workshop will provide strategies for how to encourage your child's growing need to assert independence while still maintaining your control and authority. Struggles around mealtime, potty training, cooperation and others will be addressed.
