Description: Do you and your little one struggle with times like bedtime or leaving the playground? Are you anxious about how your child will respond to starting preschool or becoming a big sibling? Psychologist and parenting expert Dr. Michelle Canarick, Ph.D., will help you and your children successfully navigate both large and small transitions.
Dr. Canarick combines both practical techniques for making transitions smooth, with support for parents around the feelings that changes can bring. Her approach is grounded in the concept of empathy—-for your child and yourself-—and the importance of understanding your feelings as well as your child's. This workshop is for families with children age 5 and under.
