The Challenging Child

Workshop

The Challenging Child

November 16, 2019

YWCA Toronto 87 Elm Street Toronto, Ontario M5G 0A8

Yes, challenging children can have a sweet, tender side… but raising a non-compliant, defiant kid is tiring work that requires out-of-the-ordinary tactics. Spend half a day with other parents who have children with similar temperaments to find both help and camaraderie.

The skills and theory that will be learned during this workshop are applicable to children from toddler to teen. So, If you have a difficult child that you would like to get to know better, be closer with, enjoy more, have less resistance and more co-operation from them, this workshop is for you!

Tip of the week
