Toolbox Primary Years
Just when we all think we’re getting the hang of this parenting thing, our toddlers become 5-year-olds going on 13-year-olds and we find ourselves facing a whole set of new challenges! Starting school, navigating friendships and deciding how may hours of screen time are too many hours of screen time?
Over six weeks, we’ll cover all of this and more with plenty of opportunities for discussion and questions. With the collective wisdom in the room right now (including your own) we’re sure you’ll come out the other end feeling confident and ready to tackle the primary years with your kids.
