Parent Toolkit Night: Challenging Behaviors is April 26th
The next Parent Toolkit Night is April 26th from 4:30-5:30. We will be talking about emotional literacy and how this directly ties into decreasing challenging behavior with your children (and maybe partner!). As usual, there will be a sign up if you want your child to stay in the afterschool program while you attend and there will be a giveaway.
Not sure if attending is worth it? Read what TLC parents Renee and Russel Shoenbeck thought of their first Parent Toolkit Night at the March session:
We love TLC. Let’s just throw that right out there. We love the mission. We love the philosophy. We love that we KNOW our daughter’s life is being enriched by her time spent at TLC. So, when opportunities at TLC present themselves, like Parent Toolkit Nights, we are eager to participate.
Let us explain: Parent Toolkit Nights occur 4-6 times per academic year and are available to parents of students at TLC (prospective parents: this is a wonderful benefit). The Toolkit nights are 60 minutes and are lead by a teacher and a therapist who discuss helpful strategies that are taught in school, then offer ways to incorporate those strategies at home.
Yes, really. The experts in early childhood education are not only willing to teach your child all day long, but they are also willing to teach YOU how to work with your kid (while providing you with snacks, laughs, and childcare). We feel like we could end this right here and invite you to join us, but let’s press on.

Toolkit nights are spent reviewing things like visual schedules, calm down strategies, problem-solving strategies and more, in a way that bridges the gap from school to home, and helps us help our kids with life-long strategies. The strategies help us communicate with our children better, and, heck, even our significant others (because suddenly people become a lot less annoying when they say “Geeze, my engine is running so slowly!”)
