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.
Please note that the Parenting Your Toddler Intro course (or the Toddler Transition course) is a prerequisite for the five-week series.
“I took the “Parenting Your Toddler” class for 18-36 month olds from Rebecca Walsh. It was invaluable and I learned so much. I appreciated gaining some insight into what is going on in my toddler’s growing brain and learning the various strategies—both preventative and in response to behaviors. I have seen a change in the way we interact when I am employing these strategies at home. I would highly recommend this class to any parent/caregiver of a toddler. Thank you for this opportunity!”
