School Refusal: Parents

School Refusal: Parents

So let's get real for a second.  Every school morning you wake up hoping "this is going to be a good day." Your morning is wrecked when your kid wakes up and doesn't want to go to school. These are the mornings you fear. Parents of school refusal kids know what I am talking about. Your day depends on how your kid wakes up. If your kid is good, you're good. If your kid is bad, you're stuck. What do you do? Do you try forcing your kid in the car, take away his/her iPad "forever," go to work and leave him/her at home..... School Refusal parents, you need help! Join us for this four week class as we help you step back, determine the reasons for your child's school refusal behaviors, and develop a step-by-step parenting plan to encourage your child to stay in school all day, everyday.

Happy Life

Happy Life

Life comes at us from a lot of different directions.  Sometimes it’s good.  Sometimes it’s not so good.  No matter what goes on in your life, you have the ability to control how you think and act.  In this class , we will take the basic principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and help you think and act happily.  You will learn that you can’t always change the environment, but you can change the way that you think and act in your environment.  Join us in getting Happy!

Anxious Kids = Anxious Parents

Anxious Kids = Anxious Parents

Does your child suffer from excessive fears and worries, phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, or other anxiety related issues? Is your anxious child making you "walk on eggshells" and feel helpless? If so, this class is for you!  We will cover the basics of anxiety from a Cognitive Behavioral perspective. This will give you a better idea of the key areas to be looking for when your child is anxious.  We will also discuss how to remain emotional and physically neutral, while being empathetic to your child.  You will walk away from this class with a "Parenting Plan" on how to manage your anxious child during anxious episodes.
