• Consent and Boundaries Workshop

    By : Categories : Comment: 0 Comment

    As parents and guardians, we can worry about keeping our children safe – whether that’s from scrapes and bruises or hurt feelings. But what about protection from unsafe relationships and abuse? Body safety education can play a role in empowering children with preventative skills. We can teach our little ones to seek help or self-advocate if they feel unsafe or experience abuse.

    In this foundational workshop, we will learn how to begin or continue practicing healthy boundaries, consent, and body safety. We will cover how adults can model safe relationships, pass along healthy body messages, and teach bodily autonomy. In this way, parents and guardians can create a home environment where there is an understanding of consent and a respect for the boundaries of self and others.

  • Tuning into Temperament

    Workshop: Tuning into Temperament: Monday May 30th @ 10am

    Every child has their own unique temperament. Learning how to tune into our child’s personality helps us to work with their specific traits and strengths, rather than in opposition to them. How do we support our “spirited and active” children with organizing their feelings? How do we create a sense of safety for our “cautious” little ones in new situations? Join us as we learn how our personality interplays with that of our child’s, and explore strategies in supporting their unique way of being.

  • Sleep & Bedtimes Worskhop

    By : Categories : Comment: 0 Comment

    Navigating sleep in the first months after baby has arrived, and into the early years of childhood can be a challenge for caregivers. Questions surrounding what is “normal” sleep for kids, why does my baby keep waking up at night, how do I avoid the bedtime protests, is enough to keep caregivers up at night.

    In this workshop geared towards caregivers of children 0-5 years of age, we will build understanding around typical sleep patterns, challenges in infancy, bedtime struggles in early childhood, and strategies to encourage better sleep for little ones.
