Trainings at your site: 

Is it hurting anyone?  Is it hurting anything? 

Helping adults who work with children understand when to step in...or out of a struggle.

Children have a keen sense of right and wrong, and often this talent goes unnoticed by adults who step in to solve a conflict too soon.  In this training, we dive into the idea that children learn best by trusting their instinct, solving conflict on their own and preserving to accomplish a task.   

Approximately 2.5 hours
