Parents for Gifted Education – Parent Workshop

Saturday April 29th, 10am-12pm

Marshall Middle School Library

Encouragement Parenting with Gifted Children   ** Childcare provided for children 3+

Title: Building Family Cooperation, Compassion, and Connection with Words that Work and Family Meetings

Description: Bring more peace, connection and cooperation into your family interactions. Catherine blends her knowledge of gifted children with positive parenting approaches and tools, using didactic and experiential work to support parents bringing more consciousness into their interactions with their children, creating more connection and enjoyment in their parenting roles, while inviting cooperation.

In this workshop you will chart your parenting path, learn specific words that create connection and invite cooperation, and create an on-going framework (using family meetings) that fosters cohesion, teaches the problem solving process, and offers space and time for parental guidance.
