Supporting The Sibling Connection 

A new class on siblings!! Many parents are caught off guard by how hard it is to divide their attention, energy, and affection. Helping their first child cope with all the changes that a new baby brings can feel daunting.

In this two hour class, we cover:

-New sibling preparation & adjustment

-using your support system wisely

-helping your children connect and support each other

-modeling positive communication 

-maintaining your desired closeness with each child & how responsive parenting matters

-learn strategies from fellow parents

-discussion of special considerations
