Keeping up with a fast paced, heavily scheduled life demands an endless stream of transitions from one activity to the next – sleeping to waking, eating to playing, playing to bathing, home to school/work, etc. Transitions are complicated and require skill to negotiate effectively. Meltdowns – of both parents and children – during times of transition are both common and particularly disruptive and challenging to manage. In this talk you will learn about the different skills required during transitions – for both parents and kids – and how to learn and teach these skills in ways that both reduce the impact of stress and promote resilience, competence and healthy self-esteem.
A program for parents of preschoolers (and other interested folks).
