In this 1.5-hour fun and interactive workshop based on Positive Discipline, you will experience how different parenting styles can either help or hinder cooperation, as well as learn and practice some amazingly effective and easy ways to encourage cooperation, mutual respect, and self-discipline in your toddler. You will walk away with ideas to ponder and practical tools that you can use right away to bring more joy and ease to parenting. This workshop is available for parents, caregivers, teachers and beyond! It is, however, an adults-only workshop (with the exception of small infants). Childcare in the Museum during the workshop is available with a fee. Please email familyprograms@habitot.org or call (510)647-1111 ext 16 for more information about childcare and our free workshops.
