‘Tame Tantrums and End Power Struggles’

Your 2 year old seems to be melting down every other day- it doesn’t make sense and you don’t know what to do- but your stress level shoots up with each one.

Your 4 year old refuses to put her shoes on 5 minutes before it’s time to go- and you will be late again.

Sound familiar? It doesn’t have to be this way. We will identify what causes meltdowns and tantrums & learn concrete strategies for how to stop them. We will also learn how to avoid power struggles (and what to do if you find yourself in one.)
If you’d like to learn how to get your child to cooperate while building emotional connection, this workshop is for you.

‘Sibling Rivalry 101’

“Mom! She keeps singing and she knows I hate her stupid voice!”

“Dad! He keeps coming in my room and now he broke my doll!”

“No fair!… It’s my turn!… She started it!…”

Are your kids driving you crazy? Learn how to help them get along. And for when they can’t? Learn how to teach your children to resolve conflict and build a bond that lasts for life. Whether you want to decrease sibling rivalry or learn how to stop it from starting, this workshop is for you.

‘Introducing Another Baby: Big Brother/Big Sister Transition Success!’

“I hate the baby! I wish he never was born. Send him back.”

Learn how to manage this difficult transition BEFORE you hear these heartbreaking words. We will discuss how to best prepare your child for his or her new sibling, how to manage the transition, and how to handle jealousy and aggression should they become an issue. Bonus: Tips for how to manage the challenges of caring for a baby and a small child at the same time!!

‘Hold On and Let Go: Parenting Your Tween’

 

The tween years… Forget the terrible twos. The tween years can be some of the hardest you face as a parent. Not only is your child experiencing the physical upheaval of puberty or pre-puberty, his brain is rewiring and this can be a source of emotional upheaval. Amid all of this- your child is doing his job and separating from you. You both will experience growing pains. How do we stay close to our tweens when they are (developmentally appropriately) beginning to move away from us? We need to parent for both connection AND independence. We have to hold on so they can let go. In this workshop you will learn strategies for parenting your tween and we will discuss some big ideas to keep in mind as your tween transitions from child to adult.

‘Learn How To Stop Yelling At Your Kids’

You walk into the bathroom and see an inch of water on the floor and you just lose it. Your kids just stare at you with fear in their eyes. Now they’re crying and you feel terrible. You promised yourself you’d stop yelling and you can’t believe you did it again. You are not alone. It is so hard not to yell when we get triggered. Especially if we were yelled at as children. And after a while, kids don’t even listen until we yell. But if this feels terrible to you- you can stop. Learn concrete strategies to help you rewire your brain and stop yelling at your kids. You will be so glad you did.


Parent educator Sarah Rosensweet will present both the causes of and solutions for common parenting challenges. Solutions will be from a peaceful parenting perspective and include specific how-to’s for each challenging area. Bring your questions as we will save time for a Q and A and discussion. For parents of toddlers through young school age.

Sarah’s workshop gave a lot of clarity to the murky world of what children need and why they behave certain ways. She helped me understand how effective operating from compassion could be in terms of meeting both my expectations and my children’s. Within a day I saw changes in how I brought myself to my children and how they responded. It’s been absolutely incredible. Sarah is a warm, nurturing, compassionate person who understands what drives kids’ needs and behaviours biologically, psychologically, and physiologically, and her insights and suggestions as to how to meet those needs and work with those behaviours in order to foster good connection and empathy have been invaluable. The day after the workshop, I recommended her to several people and can’t wait to take her workshop again.

After the workshop we just had the BEST morning with the kids- using different language, focusing on the connection- a whole new approach and view of parenthood with smiles on all of our faces until we walked out the door. Your workshop was not only fun, but INFORMATIVE. I now have some new strategies to handle those moments where I thought wow, i’ve used up all my tricks! It’s changed the way I view the harder moments of parenting. Skip the evening of me-time, and GO TO THE WORKSHOP.
