Webinars are a great way for busy parents like you to gather information. Did you learn about how to deliver a baby BEFORE you actually delivered your baby? Why wait until your child is displaying unwanted behaviors to learn about how to prevent/manage them? Our webinars are designed to offer you quick, evidence-based tips from the comfort of your home!

April 2018: “Will My Children Ever Play Together Nicely?”
We will review ways to promote successful sibling interactions by bridging the skill gap between children. Register here!
May 2018: “We Talked About It….Why do I Need to Practice It?”
Your child didn’t learn to engage in unwanted behavior because you told him to do it, right? (“Please throw yourself on the floor when I tell you ‘no’.”) More likely, he learned to tantrum because he hasn’t yet learned to do something better. Moreover, the behavior works or he wouldn’t continue to engage in it. He learned to engage in that behavior because of what happened to him afterwards. If your toddler screams when you play a certain way and you play a different way, she will learn to scream to change your behavior. We will teach you how to create opportunities to practice what your child SHOULD do when his/her “switch” is on. Register here!

July 2018: “Be Your Child’s Sleep Expert”
Did you know that there are 6 common sleep disruptions in early childhood? Did you know that most children experience more than one simultaneously? This means that any sleep plan you implement has to address each of the reasons the child’s sleep is disrupted. We review the 6 common sleep disruptions and strategies to resolve them!
August 2018: “Mastering the Parenting Art of Picking Your Battles”
Whose battle is this? Why am I picking this battle? Is this a necessary battle to pick right now? We will share strategies to help you identify battles you shouldn’t be picking. Learn when and how to pick those battles that are worth picking, and how to prevent battles from happening!
September 2018: “Have a Master Negotiator on Your Hands?”
Does your child constantly ask why? Are you exhausted by the end of the day with arguing or negotiating with your child? We will share strategies to nip this pattern in early childhood.
October 2018: “Proactive Strategies to Manage Big Life Changes”
We will share proactive strategies to set you and your family up for success as you experience major life changes (move to a new home, new sibling, divorce/separation, terminal illness, starting preschool or a new daycare, parent increased work travel schedule, etc). We will discuss how to prevent regression by making sure you are using your strategies consistently and correctly.
November 2018: “What to do to Prepare for Baby #2”
Adding a sibling to the family is a time of excitement! Along with that excitement comes changes that we can prepare our children for, such as tolerating divided attention. We will share some of our evidence-based strategies to prepare your first born for a new sibling. This webinar will be beneficial if you have 2 or more children and are welcoming in a new baby as well!
December 2018: “Does Your Child Have a Tendency to Avoid Things?”
One of the most common reasons for unwanted behavior in early childhood is that it serves to help the child delay or escape expectations. Both passively or actively, we have seen children as young as 2 years old who have already developed a great set of avoidant behaviors. The longer we wait to address what starts as passive resistance, the greater the likelihood of needing to address active resistance as that child gets older. Our goal with this webinar is to help you recognize the subtle patterns of avoidance in your children as early as possible. Armed with this knowledge, you can teach your child more appropriate skills before it gets “bad enough.”
