What's that cloud mean? Is it going to rain? Check the computer to see if it's going to be "bad weather!!!!" Why is it windy? Yep!!!! It's that time of year. Storm Season. If your child worries about storms, join us and other parents of anxious storm kids for dinner and discussion about a parenting plan which will allow you to support your child's storm anxiety without constant reassurance, accomodations, and avoidance. You will learn Cognitive Behavioral skills to help your child improve his/her confidence to "fight back" against storms while you sit back and cheer him/her on.
The "V" word. VOMIT. The fear of vomiting is one of the most common phobias. Managing the fear of vomiting can be difficult because just the thought of vomiting can make people feel queasy. In turn, it is difficult for anxious people to determine if this queasy feeling is a result of going to vomit or because of the worry about getting sick.
During this class, you will learn the Cognitive Behavioral skills necessary to help you deal with the uncertainty and uncomfortability of when (not if) you will vomit again. We'll help you become more confident that you “will be able to handle” vomiting. As a party favor, all participants will take home a "Vomit Bag." ;)
For college basketball fans, March is an emotional roller coaster with "Madness" being the coined emotion describing the frenzy. Can you relate? Is your day to day more negative than positive?

Are you a parent of a "Basement Dweller?" An adult child who seems to be comfortable just chillin' in your basement with no plans or motivation for the future? If so, join us and other parents of Basement Dwellers for dinner and conversation about how to establish a parenting plan to encourage your adult child out of your basement and into independent living. We know the difficulty that can arise when pushing your adult child into independent living when he/she is not "ready." For this reason, we will discuss ways to address housekeeping, budgeting, cooking, laundry and all the other independent living skills for your young adult child to move out and establish independent living.
