Smart Connections is a FREE series of one-hour sessions for parents and caregivers to learn strategies to better understand and connect with their children. Join us for an hour each week to explore making smart connections with your children. Learn strategies you can apply immediately and interact with other parents who are facing the same challenges. Attend all sessions or only those of particular interest to you. Topics include:

  • Managing the Ups & Downs

  • Reading the Emotional Signs

  • All About Feelings

  • Creating Comfort with Routines and Rituals

  • Building a Calming Spot

  • Encouraging Learning at Home

  • Setting Realistic Expectations and Compassionate Boundaries

  • Encouraging Growth through Praise

  • Supporting Identity Development

  • Compassion Fatigue & Resilience

The Smart Connections series is typically offered once in the spring and again in the fall. If there is enough interest or you are interested in providing Smart Connections for a group or organization, additional sessions are always an option.
