If family life has you mired in chaos, you may want to consider an upcoming parenting workshop, starting at the Shadbolt this Wednesday.
"From Chaos to Calm" is a six-week course hosted by parenting coach Barb Desmarais and yoga instructor Michele Labelle.
The first part of the series focuses on effective discipline strategies (without yelling or spanking), prioritizing, effective communication, and the importance of individual time, as well as "couple time." The second part includes yoga and breathing to connect the mind and body, using techniques that work for adults and children.
The sessions run Wednesdays, from Sept. 19 to Oct. 24, from 7 to 9 p.m. The course is $225 per person or $295 for a couple.
The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts is at 6450 Deer Lake Ave. For more information, call Desmarais at 778-899-2978 or Labelle at 604-618-8194.
