Get Connected! Fridays in May at 10:15 Do you want more calm and joy in your home? Do you want more confidence in facing uncooperative behaviors? For parents and caregivers of children in K-3rd grade. Thoughtful families know that children need a strong social and emotional foundation in order to arrive at school ready to learn and thrive. In this group, caregivers will learn effective communication techniques to create stronger connections with their children, their school and their community. We will uncover what IS working in the current situation and use those strengths to foster cooperation, respect, and collaboration. We will identify strategies for reacting with calm confidence and for creating firm, loving limits. Dana Allara is a certified Parent Coach at Dana Allara Coaching.
