Navigating a child's social and emotional world

A simple play date or family outing in the sunshine can easily escalate to tsunami levels within minutes .... literally or figuratively!

What sends a child from 0 - 100 in seconds?

Children are not born knowing how to navigate every new interaction or experience. In our role as parents, we endeavor to help them understand and learn to cope with challenging social and emotional situations. This seminar looks at the underlying issues causing social and emotional difficulties for children, and provides a range of strategies to better equip parents to meet their needs, and to 'calm the storms' when things become difficult.
