In this class, childhood and teen and experts and licensed therapists, Susan Trueblood, Marla Elliott, Kassidy Nearhoof, Helen Garrett will present on the importance of teaching your child to tolerate a “No” from you. Whether your kid is neurotypical or neurodivergent, we will cover the importance of natural consequences and why parents should not step in for a rescue.

We will present calming strategies for both parents and kids, how to avoid a power struggle and how to maintain your parental role for lifelong healthy relationships.
