GSMS Parent Series

How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen

You’re invited to attend the February 2023 GSMS Parent Series on the book, How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen: A Survival Guide to Life With Children Ages 2–7. Presented by Sarah Kulwicki, Montessori Consultant and GSMS parent, all sessions will be held from 7:00–9:00 p.m. at the school.

Parenting young children can be full of challenging moments. How do we respond to a crying child, and how do we offer helpful support during stressful moments? How do we validate emotions and build connection and trust? What do we do and say when there is conflict? How do we encourage cooperation? Come learn new and easy to use positive parenting strategies to add to your everyday parenting toolbox.

Reading the book is recommended, but not necessary.

Attending the full series will be most fruitful, but you are also invited to attend single sessions.
