It's frustrating and worrisome when we want to help our kids and they are shutting down or shutting us out. And often our efforts inadvertently make things worse, leaving parents feeling powerless and increasingly concerned. By taking a look at what is happening in a child’s brain when they shut down, we can better understand why common strategies in an effort to help often are not well received. The Mariposa method uses brain science to provide specific strategies and language to change the way your messages and support can be received. In this workshop, we will teach participants about what’s happening in the brain under stress, and what you can do in those moments to create the connection you’re seeking, and learn more about your child, so you can help.
