Event Details

Why it’s OK (and even Good) for Kids not to Share
An introduction to the counterintuitive world of “Renegade
Parenting”. Get ready to examine age-old parenting
conventions and turn them upside down. We’ll look at new
ways to approach sharing, saying ‘sorry’, coping with angry
children, rough play, toy weapons and other topics. Be
prepared to change your mind.
Welcoming what Scares Us
When it comes to raising kids, it’s always Safety First.
Or is it? Childhood is also a time of risk. Learn the four key
areas of risk children need to experience (physical,
creative, social and emotional), and how well-meaning
adults often undermine it. We’ll look at social rejection,
conflict, unstructured play and ways to offer healthy risk to
our children.
Getting Comfortable with True Play
Play-yes! It’s great. But how do we make changes and truly
welcome children’s play ideas into the classroom? We’ll
look at classroom schedules, environments and adult
expectations. We’ll see what belongs there and what we
can change to make room for more meaningful forms of
play and learning.
