- Parent Workshop
April 8, 2019
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The expression of frustration and aggression in children and teens can take on many forms including temper tantrums and various forms of attack. Part of making headway requires understanding the roots of frustration and aggression and how to deal with the resulting behaviours. This presentation will focus on strategies for dealing with a frustrated child while preserving one’s relationship to them. It will address the importance of setting limits and helping children learn they can survive futilities that are part of life.
Certificates of attendance will not be given for this parent education event.
This presentation is held in partnership with Delta Kids.
