Ever wish you could "Kiss and Go" when dropping your child off at school, saying your "good night," when saying "go on, get out there" at the soccer, baseball, or football field? If your child has trouble separating from you at school, bedtime, social activities, or any other situation, you should definately spend the next 4 weeks with us learning ways to have your child separate from you rather than pushing your child off you and running ;) During this class, we will discuss the Cognitive Behavioral basics of Separation Anxiety and a Behavioral Modification plan to help your child become more confident and independent of you.
