Raising a Thinking Child

Raising a Thinking Child is targeted for

  • Caregivers of children 4-7 year-old
  • Educators and child care providers (12 hours of Registry credit available)

This evidence-based workshop series will help you guide your child to solve common, everyday problems with decision making and communication skills using their thinking brain.  It is a refreshingly practical curriculum that helps you help your child learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think, as they learn to resolve their own problems.

Participants will learn:

  • To give their children skills to solve their own problems
  • Fun games to help children learn these problem solving skills and consider consequences
  • How to help kids care about and understand their own and those of others

Classes will be held ONLINE- Using Zoom Meeting App.  You can join on your computer, tablet, or smart phone from the comfort of you home.

Class dates:

February 21st- March 28th 2023 9:00 am- 10:15 am or 6:00 pm-7:15 pm
