About the Event
The Joys and Challenges of Growing Up!
Guiding our children through the stages of development all the way to adulthood
Just as there are certain milestones when a baby grows into a toddler, there are key challenges and opportunities older children experience as they grow into adulthood. How can we support a sense of security, of interest in the world and increasing independence in our children?
Understanding the stages of child development and seeing the unique qualities of each child is the foundation for the work of Waldorf teachers. This understanding of child development can also help parents guide and support their children as they encounter the world in new and ever-changing ways.
These and other topics are the focus of a series of Conversations about Parenting offered by the Halton Waldorf School, facilitated by Flora Seul-Jacklein
