Monday, February 6, 2017. Are mornings in your house chaotic? Are meltdowns a weekly (or daily!) occurrence? Are you unsure about how much responsibility is appropriate for your child?


Give yourself a much-needed break at this fun workshop guaranteed to provide tools to take home and use immediately. We’ll discuss and identify opportunities to encourage self-reliance and positive self-concept as well as how to approach chores and responsibilities for a smoother and happier household! Give-aways, raffles, and other great resources will be provided.

Presented by Holly Baxter, MA, PPS
