Early Childhood Event -- The Way of Play: Little Moments -- Big Connections

Virtual Event

Most parents understand that unstructured play time is essential for a child’s growth and creativity, but new science has discovered that little moments of deliberate, playful interaction with parents is key to their healthy emotional development and later resilience.

New York Times bestselling co-author of “The Whole-Brain Child” Tina Payne Bryson and renowned play therapist Georgie Wisen-Vincent come to GPS to share how short, daily playful interactions with your kids can help them let go of anxiety and drama, reduce chaotic behavior and help kids better face their fears, handle big emotions and bolster social skills. Learn how to foster calm listeners, cooperative problem solvers and respectful communicators all while having fun as a family!
