Parenting and Restorative Practices

Speaker: Michelle Gleinser – Behavior Consultant

Date: Tues., January 31st from 6:30-8:00 pm

Location: ZOOM Webinar

In our busy and fast paced world, it is sometimes difficult to focus on what wonderful things our kids do every day. This session will explore strategies to connect with our kids in meaningful ways by asking thought provoking questions and reinforcing positive behaviors. Through building and developing meaningful communication avenues, our children can learn how their behavior, thoughts, actions, and words affect everyone they encounter. The program is free!
