A strong parent-child relationship is the foundation for your child’s future success. However, sometimes being a parent can leave you frustrated and pulled in many directions with little time to focus on your child or your relationship.
Child-Parent Relationship Enrichment is a research-based approach to teaching parents of 3 to 9 year-old children how to understand and meet their children’s emotional needs through one of children’s most essential communication tools: play.
In weekly workshops, we teach parents the same strategies that therapists use to help children express themselves and cope with problems. You will practice what you are learning by planning 30 minute special playtimes with your child(ren). We provide Flip video cameras to help you capture special moments and self-evaluate how well you are implementing the strategies. The atmosphere is friendly, accepting and interactive, making it enjoyable and interesting.
In Child-Parent Relationship Enrichment…
- You, the parent, will learn how to:
- improve communication with your child(ren)

- Your children will:

- reduce tensions, feelings and burdens
