After a year of hybrid, remote, in-person, or some combination of all three, children and parents alike may be experiencing some anxiety about the return to school this year. Some children did okay while some others struggled. There are still many unanswered questions when it comes to school and the pandemic, but many parents wonder how do they best support their children through another year of uncertainty?

At this webinar, Smart Love therapists and guest speakers will provide insight into how parents can evaluate how their children are adjusting back to school. They will discuss how parents can help children with the transition and provide tips to keep in mind as children navigate another complicated year and learn how to cope with challenging emotions when experiencing losses.

A free workshop for expecting parents and parents with children up to aged three who are curious about three child development essentials that they can focus on in their daily parenting amid the pandemic chaos/fatigue. This workshop is all about going back to the basics of infant & toddler development while making it social justice conscious too.

In this free workshop, parents will learn that:

+ When they cut out the parenting fuss and come back to care, they can focus on the three essentials things that lay a resilient foundation of development for your child. They are Reciprocity, Regulation, and Reconnection (3 R’s).

+ When they implement the 3 R’s in daily parenting- whether it’s during toilet training or tantrum- they’re practicing three concepts of transformative justice too. They'll unpack how concepts like power-with, solidarity, and accountability aren’t just for social justice. They nurture their child's development too.
