Navigating the Emotional World of Kids

According to the statistics, we are the most addicted, in-debt, depressed, obese population in U.S. history.  We go to great lengths to avoid, deny, medicate or suppress emotions.  This country is full of adults who never learned how to navigate their emotions in a constructive way.  What would it look like to raise a generation of emotionally and spiritually healthy children?  

This workshop will focus on understanding the emotional development of children.  We’ll identify three important emotional milestones for kids to hit as they develop, and the ingredients for helping them reach them.  We will explore the role of temperament in nurturing kids emotionally.  Parents and educators will be introduced to practical ideas for furthering a child’s emotional development.
