Parenting Center Workshop: Toilet Training Without Tears (January 17, 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.
The toilet training process should not and does not have to be fraught with conflict or worse, shame. This workshop will address ways to approach toilet learning in a way that is developmentally appropriate and respectful to the child’s growing need to feel in control of his or her body, and that frees parents from unnecessary stress and anxiety. The workshop will also address ways to manage typical challenges that arise during the process.
