Tamar Jacobson, author of EVERYONE NEEDS ATTENTION
Join Tamar Jacobson for a presentation inspired by her book EVERYONE NEEDS ATTENTION: Helping Young Children Thrive.

Attention seeking is seen as misbehavior in young children, and giving them the attention they need is oftentimes interpreted as reinforcement of bad behavior. Tamar will share how we, as adults must manage our emotions when children seek our attention, include how-to strategies to help the reader reflect on how they sought out attention as children as well as some concrete steps to assist in self-explorations.

This webinar will be 1 hour and a certificate of participation will be shared after the live session. The webinar will be recorded and sent to everyone who registers.

There will be time for audience questions at the end. If you would like to pre-submit your question for Tamar please email them to Meredith Burks at mburks@redleafpress.org by Thursday, April 15.

Apr 16, 2021 02:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
