Classes

CPI offers classes to parents of children ages 0-18. Each class is led by a trained parent educator who provides tools that parents can adapt to their own family's needs. All CPI classes have a strong child development foundation, supporting the belief that each child and parent brings unique needs and temperament to family life.

Although many classes are held at the Parent Education Center in southwest Santa Rosa, others are conveniently located throughout Sonoma County.

This class will introduce key strategies to help parents build and strengthen connection with their child while establishing calm, clarity and positive communication.

Parenting Advanced Learners at SRACS (ages 4-18)

6 sessions

Wednesdays / February 21 - March 28, 2018 / 7:00-8:30pm

Santa Rosa Accelerated Charter School 4650 Badger Rd, Santa Rosa, CA

Parenting “gifted” children can be wonderfully rewarding. It can also be challenging, frustrating and exhausting! This series of guided discussion groups will offer a forum for exchanging information about nurturing our sensitive, intense, creative, and insatiably curious children. Topics will include meeting social/emotional needs, peer relationships, perfectionism, motivation, underachievement, self-regulation, executive function skills, depression, twice exceptional children (gifted plus other issues), stress, idealism, existential angst, frustration tolerance, advocacy, imposter syndrome, and nurturing ourselves too! These classes will be based loosely upon the national SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) parent group model. Please join us for good company, support, and lively discussion.
