I’ve finally come up with a structure for my introductory parent workshop at the end of this month – I’m callling it Caring for the Inner Neanderthal: Tips for Tired Parents of Toddlers.
(Now, I want to say right here that the idea of toddlers being like Neanderthals isn’t my idea. It’s something Harvey Karp came up with. Take a look at his Happiest Toddler on the Block book and video.
The workshop is meant to introduce SFTS to some of the local parents while offering some supportive ideas for dealing with issues that arise with our darling 2-3s.
Developing just the right content and delivery takes time, I’m finding, and while the content is sure fire, research supported, and field tested, getting it out there for people to benefit from is quite a challenge!
But I so firmly believe that developing our skills as parents is, in this culture, often so lonely, and so full of misconception, that I just have to keep plugging away.
Update: Workshop registration is now available here.
