Join us as we explore how to navigate tantrums, meltdowns and outbursts, and how we can stay connected to our little ones through their big feelings. Together we will learn why children have tantrums, what is taking place developmentally, what happens in the brain, and what are they communicating through their behaviour. We will look at practical strategies of how to provide connection and support for our children (and for ourselves) during these challenging moments.Read More →
Happy Father’s DayRead More →
Thinking of all the fathers, uncles, grandads,
caregivers stepping into that role,
children missing their fathers,
folks with challenging relationships
with their dads,
those who long to be parents,
caregivers missing their children,
adoptive & foster dads…
May you feel cared for, loved, and safe
on this special day
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.Read More →
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.Read More →
