As parents in the 21st century, we are often stuck with parenting practices rooted in the distant past. Some of them may be good, others may be good in the short-term only, and some may be actually harmful.

In this class we will learn about the origins of the practice of time-outs, about the dangers of using them as punishment and discover another application of time-outs: a powerful soothing practice applicable to both children and adults, including spouses!

Help your child build resilience in the face of intense emotions and difficult situations, all the while preserving their trust and strengthening your relationship.

The class will be presented in English by Andrei Andreev, Certified Nonviolent Parenting Educator.

Childcare: Feel free to bring your child to the class space as long as their presence does not disrupt the presentation. The library does not provide childcare.
