Building Early Emotional Skills in Young Children
Need help taming the terrible twos? Want to reduce some of that parenting stress and decrease behavior problems in your child? Looking to enhance your parenting skills and learn helpful information about early childhood development?
Join Michigan State University (MSU) Extension’s Building Early Emotional Skills workshops to develop the skills needed to support the social and emotional development of your child. This eight-week class will take place for 90 minutes each week. Participants will receive educational enhancements that will help them apply what they learned in class to real-life situations at home with their children. Interested attendees can participate in two ways: in person or online. In-person classes will take place in Saginaw County, with childcare and meals provided. Online, web-based trainings are available to Michigan residents in communities outside these two areas.
Participants must have a child between the ages of birth and three years. Preference is given to participants eligible for WIC, Head Start, Bridge Card, etc. For more information, contact:
