VIRTUAL PARENT WORKSHOP: Toilet Training Without Tears
TOILET TRAINING WITHOUT TEARS: AVOIDING THE PERILS OF THE POTTY
Led by Claire Lerner, L.C.S.W.-C
Many parents today are terrified of the toilet training process, having heard horror stories from friends about the power struggles and stress they encountered. This workshop will address ways to approach potty learning in a way that is developmentally appropriate, respectful to the child’s growing need to feel in control of his or her body and which frees parents from unnecessary stress and anxiety. The workshop will also address ways to manage typical challenges that arise during the process.
