Learn how to better connect with your child in this empowering workshop. Therapist Cindy Smolkin will lead us through a series of proven techniques enabling parents to use mirroring and empathy to better attune to their child’s feelings. Learn how these techniques can help you to set limits, shift negative behaviours and avoid ugly power struggles. Over time, by applying the tools of this workshop, you can assist children and teenagers to organize and control their emotions – leading to more confident and emotionally resilient individuals.
Cindy Smolkin, M.S.W, R.S.W., associate with Connected Parenting (http://www.connectedparenting.com) is a therapist who has been helping children, teens and families for 18 years.
This workshop is being funded through a Ministry of Education grant we received (Parents Reaching Out Grant). We will also be receiving a subsidy from the TDSB that gives us $3 for every parent / guardian who attends. We are happy to have this support!
