Join us for enlightening insights on the sensitive period between ages 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 when children are open to learning social skills and manners that will be the foundation for their social interactions. Manners are a now or not quite never issue, but if you miss this window you'll have to wait until between the ages of 12 to 15, for another developmental period when young teens are open to developing and polishing social skills. Maren Schmidt brings her 25 years' experience working with children to our talk about how to maximize your child's social skills and relations during the sensitive period, with valuable takeaways you can put in immediate practice.
