Parents: we’ll keep your children aged 4 – 9 engaged in a special program while you attend this program.
There is no fee for this class, but pre-registration is appreciated.
Who among us has never lost their temper with their child? Who has never said something in anger that we regretted once it came out of our mouths? We live in times that seem to incite anger and shorten our tempers.
The Jewish Tradition recognizes that anger is something that must be handled with care because it creates special burdens on those around us and those who receive our anger.
Learn how to turn angry Oys to parenting Joys with everyday techniques from both child development research and the Book of Genesis. Ideas from The Joys and Oys of Parenting: Insight and Wisdom from the Jewish Tradition will help reduce the anger in your household and limit the sting and hurt from the anger that does occur.
