Who's this for?

Our workshops are designed for ALL parents. Knowing a little bit about what is going on in your child’s brain, and how to build healthy social, emotional and behavioral skills is important for ALL parents.

This workshop will be a game changer if:

You have a child who is having big feelings and struggling to learn how to mange them

Your child is having trouble in social situations, because they don’t have the attention to sit through circle time or share with their friends.

Your child has some behaviors that makes making friendships with others tricky for them.

Your child’s teacher or child care provider has brought up concerns about their hitting, listening, attention span or ability to get along well with their others.

You would like to change some of your child’s behaviors and you would like to do it without yelling, shaming or handing out hard punishments. 

What you'll learn:

Importance of social-emotional development

How to have fewer tantrums

Teaching self-regulation (calm down strategies), sharing, listening, regulating voices and whining less, honoring personal space, hitting and pushing.

Teaching your child to accept the word "NO"

Making everyday routines easier

How to build attention span

The best social-emotional books, toys, and materials

Hear it from them :)

"I now understand why and how certain activities can help shape my son's development (even from a young age). I've gained the confidence to parent with more intention and highly recommend this workshop.”

Kimberly R.

"The social stories are going to help us so much!! So many of our struggles stem from stalling or not so fun behaviours to avoid doing what is asked of them. Implementing this immediately!"


"I found this so helpful with tips for my kiddo with Autism, and the play-based skill development is so approachable even for kids with different needs."
