Classes for Parents With Challenging Kids


For caregivers who have kids with challenging behaviors, the Parent Child Journey course was designed by Dr. Dan Shapiro to help identify the source of their child’s behavior and learn what they can do about it. During each class, I will describe proactive strategies for raising children with difficult temperaments and developmental differences. Designed to address the needs of families with children from preschool age through early adolescence, caregivers will learn to customize their approach to fit their child’s unique profile.

Learn more about Dr. Shapiro's classes on the Parent Child Journey website.

This short course is for parents who want to improve their quality of life. In addition to helping you prioritize doing things you enjoy, this class will teach you new ways to think about your problems, and help you implement self-care techniques. The emphasis will be on principles taught in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) that have been proven to reduce stress. By learning how to balance your own needs with those of the rest of the family, you can be a better parent.

Our quarterly book club meetings are a chance to reconnect with other parents while exploring a range of topics related to raising children. Come to the book club ready to discuss what you learned while reading the book selected for that session - what you liked, what was useful, and what didn't make sense. The book club meetings will be highly interactive with lots of discussion.

Jeanne Schindler has graciously offered to host these book clubs at her home in Hyattsville Maryland. Once you complete your registration, I will send you her address and phone number.

Meetings will begin at 7:30 p.m.
