Tiny humans, big emotions: Parent and caregiver workshop
Tuesday, July 236- 7:30 p.m.
We are excited to bring emotional development expert Alyssa Campbell to Carpenter-Carse Library. This workshop is free, but please register by calling (802-482-2878), emailing Jill, or stopping by the front desk.
How do you respond to the tantruming child beyond validating their emotion and letting them express? Should we talk about every feeling? How do you really build a comfort in experiencing a feeling without getting trapped in it as we see in anxiety and depression? How do you build children’s coping strategies to last a lifetime, moving away from coping mechanisms? When is it time to problem solve? How do we know when it’s okay to just let something happen and move forward?
Campbell has an Master’s degree in early childhood education and is a leading expert in emotional development. She speaks to people around the world as the podcast host for Voices of Your Village in over 60 countries. She is the founder and CEO of Seed & Sew.
Babes in arms are welcome at this workshop.
