Give helpful strategies and tips for potty training, sibling rivalry, setting boundaries, effective discipline, temper tantrums, and other parenting challenges
Refer you to other programs and services
If you are dealing with more complex issues in your home that you don’t feel comfortable talking about in the group, ask your facilitator for a follow-up by phone or email – Norwood offers an array of programs and services to support healthy families.
