How we deal with anger affects not only ourselves, but the people around us, including the children in our lives. Learning the developmental stages of self-control in children is the first step in helping children to manage their emotions. This workshop can help participants learn about: child development as it relates to self-control, how stress and anger affects children and adults, activities and children’s books that can assist with self-control, and, how to put the RELAX concepts to work in daily interactions with children.
Following the workshop, participants will:
- Learn developmental stages of self-control in children

- Be able to implement activities to assist with self-control
