Now Say THIS: The Right Words for Every Parenting Dilemma with Heather Turgeon
Fri, 02/01/2019 - 9:30am
Parents of babies through school age kids.
Cost: $50 (or $65 per couple)

A toddler meltdown over the wrong pair of pants, siblings fighting in the back of the car, kids crying when you try to leave the house...

Parents have the best intentions to be patient and loving, but in the heat of the moment, they too often find themselves feeling helpless, desperate and so frustrated that they resort to yelling, threatening, bribing, or caving. Now Say This solves the dilemma: how can you be empathetic and effective at once?

Based on the popular 3-step "ALP" model of attuned communication, psychotherapist and co-author Heather Turgeon will teach parents how to be empathetic and effective all at once -- the “win-win.” Best of all, she will brainstorm exactly what to say, using real life dialogue and examples. This talk will cover topics such as,

-Tantrums and big feelings
-Hitting, biting, etc.
-Following directions and engaging cooperation
-Peer and sibling conflict resolution
-Alternatives to punishments and rewards
-Screen time, bedtime and more
-Designed for parents of babies through school age kids.

Registration, in advance is required. Babies in arms OK. Held at AdventurePlex.

The Happy Sleeper with Heather Turgeon
Fri, 02/01/2019 - 11:00am
Parents of babies 4-24 months
Cost: $50 (or $65 per couple)

In partnership with AdventurePlex, join us for an informative, practical and fun (yes fun!) sleep class for babies 4-24 months taught by the authors of The Happy Sleeper; The Science-Backed Guide to Helping Your Baby Get a Good Night’s Sleep.

Many parents feel pressured to “train” babies to sleep. But kids don’t need to be trained to sleep, they’re built to sleep. Sleep issues arise when parents (with the best of intentions) overhelp or “helicopter parent” at night—overshadowing their baby’s innate biological ability to sleep well. In The Happy Sleeper class, authors and sleep experts Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright teach parents how to be sensitive and nurturing, but also clear and structured. This class will help you through sleep issues like,

-Bedtime routines and falling asleep independently
-Night wakings
-Maintaining breastfeeding and good sleep
-Short naps, irregular schedules
-Early rising

The strategies in this class are recommended for babies 5 months and older and in some cases can be applied for babies 4-5 months. Many parents with younger babies (and even expecting parents) like to attend class to learn what's coming next! You will leave this class with a clear, sensitive sleep plan for your baby.

Registration, in advance is required. Babies in arms OK. Held at AdventurePlex.
