Strengthening the Child-Parent Relationship with Play
Kidz & Youth Workshop
Does your child draw or paint? Do you respond with “What is it?” or “I love it!” In this workshop we will draw and listen with each other in pairs. During our drawing process, you’ll discover new information about yourself and how to communicate. You and your child will have a different sense of being seen, heard and understood.
