Are you tired of repeating the same suggestions and requests with no change in results? Do you want to increase cooperation and reduce yelling and back talk? This six-week workshop is based on the book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen, an international best seller now in its thirtieth anniversary edition that is a favorite of parenting experts. The program, developed by the authors of the book, teaches valuable skills useful in any relationship, but particularly geared toward the parent/child relationship. This class uses exercises designed to increase an understanding of the adverse impact of many of our default parenting styles. Participants will learn alternative, more effective methods of interacting with children through lessons, role-play and practice. This workshop is based on the book by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. Dr. Bauerfeld is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, ADHD Coach, and Parenting Consultant with a private practice in Wilton, CT.
There is no fee for this program. You will be asked to purchase a workbook for $10. The workbook can be made available at no charge if needed; please speak to the facilitator. The workshop will run on Mondays from October 17 through December 5, no class October 31 or November 7. Registering for the first session registers the attendee for the 5 additional sessions.

October brings Sarah WSard to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program direct from Dublin. Sarah's practice revolves around the notion of virtual space. Asking the question: what reality do you experience when you stand before a piece of art? Ward plans to explore the relationship between art and space to consider how places are occupied, which at times can be transitory. Through documentation by means of photography, painting, drawing and collage, she aims to stimulate a series of work that illustrates her direct response to the natural surroundings of Weir Farm. Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested.
