Active Parenting: The First Five Years - May/June 2023 Class

Your child’s first few years are so important! Learn how to make the most of them with Active Parenting: First Five Years, a program for parents and other caregivers. Written by parenting expert (and dad) Dr. Michael Popkin, this course will show you how to nurture your child with a “just right” combination of freedom and nonviolent discipline.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Ages and stages of development
  • Building a strong bond
  • Your child’s growing brain
  • Use mindfulness to keep your cool
  • Effective discipline young children can understand
  • Choices and consequences
  • 6 ways to prepare your child for school success and much more!


Each family who successfully completes the workshop by attending and participating in all four (4) sessions, will have a chance to receive one (1) complimentary convertible car seat for your child. A family will be randomly selected at the conclusion of the 4th class and receive the car seat right away.

In addition to the wealth of knowledge, you'll receive at this workshop, you will also be given tools and resources to help along the way.
