In this workshop, we will provide insight into the inner world of young children. We will help make sense of separation anxieties, impulsivity, aggression, resistance, oppositionality and more. We will also explore how attachment is meant to unfold, and how to cultivate resilience. We will focus on why today’s discipline practices recommended to parents and educators can actually harm the relationship and healthy development, and provide safe alternatives to disciplining young children.
