March 10 Sensory Child: There are more than the five senses we learned about in school.  Some children’s behaviors maybe sensory processing challenges rather than      intentional meanness or bad behavior. Learn about all our senses and how they are          processed in our brain. Share sensory strategies and ways to help your child when their    sensory system is not functioning smoothly.   

April 14,  Emotional intelligence: Who’s got it, how to develop it and
why you want it.
Emotional Intelligence is important for good social skills, relationships
and self esteem. Learn what it is and how to foster it in your family and when to bring it
to bear on problems. This will be an interactive, participatory and problem solving class.

Feel like your kids are running away not coming to you? We’ll teach and talk strategies to
talk you in off the ledge and help you be heard.
