May Theme: The Needs of the Situation
This month, we’re talking about how to identify the needs of the situation and train your child to do the same. “The needs of the situation” is a great parenting tool that can pop you out of power struggles and create a mutually respectful way to look at just about anything. As always, come to the session with any questions or challenges you’d like to share – regardless of whether they “fit the theme”!
Key Concepts: Identifying the needs of the situation; “Power with” vs. “Power over”; training in problem solving
When: Monthly – the second Wednesday
This Month: May 11, 2022
Timing: Daytime Noon – 1 pm EST or Evening: 8 – 9:00 pm EST
Refuel & Reconnect in Parenting Circles
Parenting Circles are an interactive experience that offers fresh content and current research on diverse topics. Each monthly session will provide you with opportunities to polish and sharpen your encouraging parenting tools and gain new insights! You can ask questions about current challenges and grapple with ideas alongside other engaged, caring adults.
*Prerequisite: This program is available to anyone who has participated in a core parenting course with Family Leadership Center: the Core Class; Foundations of Family Leadership; Raising Resilient & Responsible Children; and Solving the Mystery of Parenting Teens.
Cost: We offer this monthly opportunity at no charge out of our commitment to make this work accessible to all. We are funded through the generous supporters and friends who enable Family Leadership Center us to make this happen.

A NOTE REGARDING REGISTERING FOR PARENTING CIRCLES
Going forward, you only need to register once for Parenting Circles. Once you register, you will automatically be notified each month two days before the Parenting Circle meets, with no need to let us know in advance regarding your attendance that month. Join us when it works for you!
The benefit of registering this way, via our learning platform, is that you will have access to that month’s material (handouts, slides, etc.) as well as an archive of all the previous Parenting Circle materials.
