Many kids react emotionally to unfriendly or sticky situations and make the situation worse. This workshop will teach kids how to recognize when they are in a sticky situation and give them a tool to see they have options. Kids will also learn options of how to respond to typical playground situations so they have the words and strategies in their toolbox of options. Sibling conflict will be covered.
An optional parenting workshop will be running concurrently for an additional fee (see class #11328). Parents will learn how they can help their kids manage their anger and frustrations. Managing emotions and having social skills to respond appropriately to social and family situations. Emotional regulation is our ability to manage our emotions in how we respond to situations. It is one of the most important predictors of success. If we do not have the tools in our tool box our emotional response may cause us to overreact in a negative way that impacts our self-esteem and enflames a situation. Both parents are welcome; please register just one!
