Parenting Your Challenging Child is an 8 week workshop series for parents of children who are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent or energetic. This workshop series provides insight into why children act the way they do and offers parents support and proven strategies for handling the toughest times. Parenting Your Challenging Child is for parents of children of all ages.
