Do you feel a strain on your relationship with your child(ren)? Life is so busy; it is hard to find time for meaningful moments. During this workshop we will discuss the importance of connecting with your child, what a meaningful connection looks like, and how you fit it into your busy schedule. Join us to learn how simple positive interactions with you and your child(ren) repeated throughout their developing years become the bricks that build the foundation for all future development.
