Strong willed childDoes your child:

  • Refuse to listen to the rules?
  • Generally seem difficult?
  • Test you constantly?
  • Throw a fit when they don't get their way?

Strong willed children can become a major source of frustration for parents. Come and learn some basic guidelines that will give you more confidence and make you feel more grounded in your parenting. Sessions take place on November 13 and 20 from 7:30 to 9 pm at Parenthood Partners, 1010 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, Suite 204 in Kentfield.

The class is led by Melissa Lapides, a mother of three children and a marriage and family therapist who specializes in parenting issues and child behavior support. Melissa will discuss not only how to set limits, draw healthy boundaries, and create consistency, but will also have parents start to reflect on how their actions contribute to and create a dynamic. She'll talk about value based parenting and working toward a parenting style that is authoritative and empathic and compassionate at the same time. This workshop is ideal for parents with children of all ages.
