Encompass hosts child emotional education class
March 1, 2011
How should parents handle an angry or frustrated child? Kerry Beymer, a certified Parenting Counts instructor and parenting education/family support manager for Encompass, will lead a free workshop in the Issaquah Highlands to teach parents how to help their children regulate their emotions.
The two-hour workshop will teach parents how to tune into their children’s feelings, use emotional moments as opportunities to connect with their children, respect their children’s feelings by listening to them respectfully, help their children identify, and name emotions and explore solutions together.
The evidence-based class is full, but a wait list is forming for a second class. Sign up at www.encompassnw.org.
