Parenting Toddlers & Preschoolers

As a parent of a child under five, every day is an exciting challenge full of surprises. You never really know what to expect next when it comes to things like language, learning, or physical activity. And then there are those temper tantrums that seem to flare up out of nowhere! At times, you may feel like nothing you do as a parent is working.

The Parenting Toddlers and Preschoolers workshop helps take some of the guesswork out of parenting by helping you better understand why children behave the way they do at this age. We’ll offer positive strategies to help you guide your children’s behaviour and provide a nurturing home, while you take care of yourself.

Who can attend?

  • Any caregiver who is parenting a child between 18 months and five years old.
  • Families interested in establishing positive parenting practices in toddlers or preschoolers.

 What will you learn?

You will build skills for parenting toddlers and preschoolers by understanding:

  • What to expect as your child develops
  • Your parenting style and how it affects your child
  • Why children behave the way they do
  • How to positively guide behaviours
  • What bonding is and why it’s important
  • How ‘play’ helps develop physical, intellectual, and social skills
  • How to encourage confidence
  • How to better communicate with children
  • How to deal with misbehaviour and tantrums
  • How to potty train
  • How to care of yourself

By the end of the session, you will feel more comfortable:

  • Creating effective parenting strategies and giving positive feedback
  • Addressing misbehaviour or other issues
  • Setting boundaries, limits, and guidelines
  • Communicating with your child or children
  • Providing a nurturing home environment
  • Minimizing the negative effects of divorce or separation (if applicable), and
  • Solving day-to-day problems and challenges
