Interactive Webinar for Parents and Caregivers

LEARN HOW to SUPPORT YOUR CHILD THROUGH ANGER, SADNESS, and WORRY

Does your child have strong emotions they struggle to control? Tantrums, excessive crying, yelling, slamming doors, kicking, hitting. Does this sound familiar?

Do you wonder the best way to help them, but are still unsure? Are you feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, embarrassed? Have you tried everything and nothing works?

Come join us Thursday, February 18 6-7:30pm CST, and I’ll teach you how to help your child cope with big emotions so that you can better enjoy your time together.

Learn how to help your child recognize, understand, and manage their emotions so that you can regulate them when the next meltdown occurs. In this interactive webinar, I will teach you easy, practical techniques that can be used at home, so that you can aid your child in identifying, expressing, and regulating their emotions in the future.

I am a registered play therapist with ten years of experience. I have helped hundreds of parents manage emotions and behaviors in their children. I have learned that the quickest way to change a child’s behaviors is to have active, supportive parents or caregivers.

I recall a three-year-old kid named Jack. His parents came to me feeling completely out of options. Jack had been kicked out of 2 preschools and was teetering on the edge of a third. Jack would have tantrums at school, hitting and kicking his teachers and peers. At home, things were not much better. He hated not getting his way and would scream and name call, especially towards his mom.

After teaching his parents how to use these strategies, strong emotions in the home began to subside. Jack learned regulation techniques he then could use in the school environment. I remember mom telling me after one of our sessions, “I feel like I can reconnect to Jack. We are able to play games at home without meltdowns. He is enjoying school and making friends.”

This program is for you if you have ever felt lost, worried, or ashamed by your child’s behaviors. Don’t let your child have the label of the “bad kid”. Let me help you help them so that you can have an enjoyable, healthy relationship with your child and support them in leading happy, successful lives.

You can attend from the comfort of your own home to have your questions and concerns regarding your child’s emotions addressed. Can’t attend live? I’ll send you the recording to watch on your own time.

Having the tools you need to help your child with their emotional skills can make life a lot easier and more enjoyable for you and your kids.
