Making Sense of Preschoolers

In this workshop we will provide insight into the inner world of the preschooler. We will help make sense of their shyness, separation anxieties, aggression, resistance, oppositionality and more. Making sense of this confusing, yet wondrous time in a child’s life, lays the foundation for intuitive and fruitful interaction with them. In Making Sense of Preschoolers we will explore: the developmental characteristics of preschoolers, how to cultivate a deep attachment and deal with separation anxiety, why preschoolers are impulsive or often resist our direction, why preschoolers can be aggressive and how we can help them adapt to what they cannot change which cultivates resilience, why today’s discipline practices recommended to parents can actually harm the relationship and healthy development, and what are safe alternatives to disciplining preschoolers.
