Toddlers, tantrums, emotional intelligence: Project Enlightenment lines up parenting workshops
Posted February 13
Just a little reminder that Project Enlightenment, Wake County schools' early childhood education and intervention program, has some great workshops for parents.
Here's what's slated for this month and next:
- Parenting One’s and Two’s: Toddlerhood can be challenging for any parent. Come learn "what makes them tick." In this workshop, we will discuss discipline, development, and ways to communicate with a toddler that will increase cooperation and reduce power struggles. For families with children 1-3 years of age. Date: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 21.
- When You Can’t Make ‘Em: Parents of young children often struggle with issues that seem deceptively simple: eating, sleeping and toileting. In this interactive workshop, parents will explore these challenges and learn strategies that are proactive and successful in preventing or managing power struggles. Date: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., March 9.
- Developing Emotional Intelligence and Resiliency in Our Children: Emotional intelligence and resiliency is what determines how well we cope with changes and adversity in our lives. Studies show that children develop their emotional IQ and resiliency early in life through their relationships with their caregivers. This workshop discusses ways you can build these skills in your child and provide a foundation that will last through adolescence and adulthood. For families with children ages birth through kindergarten. Date: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, March 16.
More information and registration details are on Project Enlightenment's website. The cost is $20 per person and $30 per couple for each workshop.
