Round table discussion series
In an attempt to better support the families we serve, The Lotus Tree will be launching a new Round Table Discussion Series. Each month there will be a topic related to parenting with two Lotus Tree staff to facilitate the discussion and ensure we stay on topic with a solution-driven conversation. You will find each topic, with a reference for reading in preparation on the board in our waiting room. As always The Lotus Tree staff will address each topic as it relates to our sensory driven kiddos.
The Round Table will be held on the first Tuesday of each month in The Lotus Tree Studio from 6:30-8pm. The cost is $10 per individual adult or $15 per couple. An additional $5 will be charged if you need childcare. Space for the Round Table will be limited to 6 couples or 12 individuals, with childcare available for up to10 children. Please sign up with the front desk personnel in person or by calling 208.433.9152.
Our first Round Table will be held on February 7th. The topic of discussion will be Connection Before Correction. Our quote of the month, by Laura Markham (ahaparenting.com):
‘When disciplining your child, connect before you correct. When kids feel connected, they WANT to “act right”. Often, all children need to get back on track is a warm, playful hug to reconnect and “reset” their limbic system from anxious to calm.’
