Do you get emotionally hijacked when your child is disrespectful or pushes your buttons? Do you find yourself too angry or upset to use your parenting skills? This workshop will give you an overview of the life-changing Collaborative Problem Solving parenting approach and specific mindfulness practices to enhance your self-regulation and coping skills in those frustrating moments, so that you can stay present with your own experience that arises in your body.
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
