Presented by Jenny Hanlon, M.Ed, WBLAS

7-8:30 p.m. on May 21

WBLAS - North Campus Theater (5045 Division Avenue, WBL)

Program Description: When children lose control emotionally or physically we’re often unsure what to do. We often end up reacting negatively, which only increases the undesirable behavior. Come for a discussion on the different Stages of Control children go through when emotionally stressed and what we can do to help teach our children how to find greater self-control. Presentation is geared towards parents/guardians of children birth-5th grade.
