Parenting through the toddler years: Five-Week Series

Workshop series for parents/caregivers with children 12-36 months

The toddler years are a time of rapid growth and change. As toddlers gain new abilities and begin to desire more independence, they can also demonstrate challenging behavior-such as tantrums, refusing to cooperate, hitting, and biting—that leave even seasoned caregivers at a loss.

In this five-week series, parents have the opportunity to share more about their unique child, ask questions, and practice evidence-based positive discipline techniques with other parents of toddlers.

Weekly topics include:

  • Toddler sleep (night weaning, nap regressions, nightmares, transitioning to a toddler bed)
  • Potty training (when/how to begin, no-pressure strategies, and language/techniques to engage toddlers)
  • Positive discipline strategies for challenging toddler behaviors like tantrums, refusing to cooperate, hitting, biting and more.
  • Preventative strategies to reduce challenging behaviors, including floor time, routines and rituals, and self-care for parents
  • Sensory and art activities (great alternatives to screen time) that will help to focus over- excited toddlers, create calming effects and help organize your child’s developing brain.
