We've had a lot of positive response to our outreach efforts, so it looks like we'll have a pretty big crowd on the 24th at our "Backseat Diplomacy" class. If you haven't already RSVP'd, please do...either at the meetup site or at [address removed]. It helps with planning...last time we ran out of chairs! (no worries, though, I think we had spaghetti left over...)
If you're planning to come, please do this little piece of homework in advance: watch for conflicts between your kids. What's it all about? What do you usually do? Are there "interventions" you use that work really well?
One more thing, if you have time: Give your kids some crayons and a piece of paper. Ask them to draw "Angry." If this is too vague, try asking them to draw an angry fish. And...a sad fish, a happy fish, a scared fish, etc. It helps if they're actually feeling these emotions while they're drawing. If you can remember, bring them to the class.
Thanks! I'm looking forward to meeting you all!
