There are tons of books written on parenting and child rearing which by their very nature have to be general. They are about children – not about your child.

But, child rearing is specific. Hanna Perkins has more than 60 years experience helping individual parents with their individual children.

This webcast seeks to extend that experience to as many parents as possible.

 You ask the questions. You choose the topics. 21st Century Parenting will help with real solutions for real-life issues. You may participate actively or just listen to the open discussion. Either way, you can do so at home or any convenient location where you use a computer.

Scheduling conflict? Don’t worry; the event will be recorded for later viewing. So register now. It’s free.

Parent Chat: Is your child ready for the next big step?

Children don’t come with an operating manual, and every parent has questions now and then about raising them. Hanna Perkins’ Parent Chats provide a helpful discussion, led by child development experts in a comfortable, informal atmosphere of mutual interest and support.

Is your child ready for the next big step?

Whether it’s kindergarten, sleep-away camp any other milestone, everyone worries whether their child is ready for the next step in the long path toward independence.

Each important step comes with its own stresses and challenges, and a child who is not yet developmentally ready for it step will struggle. Do you know the signs of readiness for kindergarten, or whatever other new experience your child is facing?

This series will help parents to answer that question over four 90-minute discussions on the following topics: 

  1. Learning
  2. Relationships
  3. Self Regulation
  4. Tying it all together

The sessions are led by child development professionals Judy Pitlick and  Carol Paull. Cost is $10 per session or $35 for all four.

Caregiver/Toddler Class

toddler silhouette  arztsamui freedigitalphotos e1408051715226 Caregiver/Toddler ClassThe relationship between a toddler, parents and a regular caregiver presents complex dynamics that can sometimes be tense or difficult to navigate.

Hanna Perkins’ new Caregiver/Toddler Class is a developmentally mindful class for toddlers, who are in a time of transition from total dependence to the firs steps of independence – a phase made more difficult as young children must navigate it with a limited vocabulary and only the most basic skills for conveying their feelings. Like our Parent/Toddler program, this class provides toddlers with an important introduction to a group setting.

But unlike other programs at Hanna Perkins or elsewhere, this class is uniquely designed for caregivers too – providing support and insight from their peers and child development specialists to help make the relationship with the parents and child healthy, productive and rewarding for everyone. 

Caregiver/Toddler Class

  • Thursday and Fridays
  • 9:30 a– 11 a.m.
  • Starting date to be determine; please check back soon
