Attendees will gain an understanding of how the nervous system works, learn how to use that knowledge to help their children, gain an understanding of youth development, learn the attentive play process called Being N.E.A.R.R. to improve your relationship with their children and explore ways to respond to typical child behaviors such as aggression, whining, not doing what they are asked and helping with transitions.
