Essentials For Moms

Essential Series: Building a Healthy Parent & Child Bond

Join us on May 27th at Twisted Yogurt, Spruce Grove for “Building a Healthy Parent & Child Bond”, the first in our 3-part Essential Series on parenting topics!

This parenting workshop is offered by Irene M. Haire, Masters in Counselling and Registered Provisional Psychologist. Irene will be speaking on “healthy” parent-child attachment and how to build a healthy “bond” with your child(ren). The quality of the relationship between parents and young children is one of the most powerful factors in a child's growth and development. "Parents with children of any age will benefit from this information", say Irene. Irene will give us tips and strategies to build this healthy attachment, which in turn helps children develop trust, self-control and problem-solving skills. Irene will hold a Q & A session to follow!

She completed her practicum at the Support Network, Children, Adolescent, Family Mental Health (CASA, 2008), and various schools within Edmonton. Irene is also a Pharmacist, and has been since 1978.
