Families with children 15 months to 4 years old

How often do you find yourself saying or thinking this? Well, you’re not alone!

Helping our children learn how to listen is a difficult and sometimes confusing task. How we communicate with them can really make a difference.

In this session we’ll share a few strategies and tips on how we, as parents, can communicate with our children in ways that build relationships, encourage desirable behaviour, and improve our children’s listening skills.
