Reflective Parenting

This 8-week class series provides a safe and supportive group to think about your child’s behavior and what they are trying to tell you. The class includes discussion about temperament, discipline, play and anger. For parents of children 3-12. Child care is provided. Call Arlen at the YWCA at 425-412-2364 to reserve a seat.
