What you will learn:

Working parents often get the worst of their kids! Rushed mornings, late in the day tired and "hangry" kids and bedtime drama! Add to that a demanding job and the running of a household. That is quite load. Understanding the underlying emotional issues of your kids as it relates to the daily transitions of life will give you the objectivity and ability to strategize and plan and not just REACT, thus making family time less emotionally loaded. In this Elective you will walk away with new skills for morning routines and rituals, as well as a deeper understanding of your children's underlying needs that may be communicated through whining and avoidance behavior.
