If you are a parent of a 4-7 year-old and your child has experienced temper tantrums, difficulty making or keeping friends, impatience or interrupting, and/or not listening, then the Raising a Thinking Child workshop may be just right for you! This evidence-based workshop series will help you guide your child to solve common, everyday problems by communicating with your child. Participants will learn to give their children skills to solve their own problems and think about the consequences through fun games. They will also learn how to help kids care about and understand their own and others’ feelings

This program is facilitated by Jenny Wehmeier, Walworth County UW-Extension Family Living Educator. It is a refreshingly practical curriculum that helps you help your child learn how to think, not what to think. Through 8 weekly classes, along with interactive, fun activities for you and your child to do at home, you will learn ways to help your child think in new problem-solving ways.
