If you are a parent of a 4-7 year-old and your child has experienced troubles listening, temper tantrums, impatience or interrupting, or difficulty making or keeping friends, 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. Parents practice ways to work through decision making and problem solving through workbook based activities. For more information or to register, take a look at the Raising a Thinking Child brochure.
