Head & Heart Parenting

Head & Heart Parenting

Thursdays, 5:30 PM-7:00 PM | 8 weeks | September 5 – October 24, 2019
Open to parents with children ages 0-17
enrollment required, no cost / free

Head & Heart Parenting is an 8-week parenting skills group with a particular focus on how the brain works.

With this sort of knowledge, we can help children better regulate their emotions and their behavior. Understanding feelings—how they exist in the brain and are felt throughout the body—is the first step in regulating them.

Parenting with the brain in mind can help you better connect with your child. A strong, positive parent-child relationship is the basis for healthy growth and development for all children, and a key ingredient to overall family functioning.
