Self Control:  Teaching Your Child to Use His/Her Inside Stopper

Saturday, May 4, 2013, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Westlake Porter Public Library, Dover Room

A common complaint heard from many parents is, “How can I get my child to stop what he is doing without telling him a hundred times?” In other words, the child is dependent on an outside stopper (mom or dad). So, how do you help your child develop an inside stopper and be able to stop themselves? This is the topic that will be addressed by Victoria Todd, MSSA, Psychoanalyst.

Connecting for Kids and the Westlake Porter Public Library are co-sponsoring this event.  Childcare is provided but space is limited. To reserve a spot for your child, visit www.connectingforkids.org or email sarahrintamaki@connectingforkids.org.

Potty Training the Challenging Child

Friday, May 10, 2013, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Westlake Porter Public Library, Dover Room

This isn’t potty training 101…this parent discussion group is specifically for parents of children who are defiant, nonverbal or have other delays that make potty training  a much more difficult process.  The conversation will focus on tools and techniques you can use in your home to help your child make a successful transition from diapers. Sarah Larson, MEd, and Holly Winterstein, MEd, Intervention Specialists with Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities will lead our discussion group.

Connecting for Kids and the Westlake Porter Public Library are co-sponsoring this event.  Childcare is provided but space is limited. To reserve a spot for your child, visit www.connectingforkids.org or email sarahrintamaki@connectingforkids.org.

Connecting for Kids

Connecting for Kids is a nonprofit, networking organization that connects parents to resources in the community and supports parents as they help their child grow and develop.  Whether a child has a formal diagnosis or if parents are just questioning if their child’s development is typical compared to same-aged peers, the group serves families concerned about physical, emotional, social/language, adaptive or cognitive development.
