Understanding RIE for Grandparents

This warm, participatory workshop’s goal is to help grandparents understand the RIE philosophy of Educaring that their children are following with their infants and toddlers. The RIE philosophy can surprisingly reveal your grandchildren and reassure you of the child’s competence and capability. This workshop will help you understand your children’s parenting practices and what your grandchildren are used to. The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, and parents and children, is vital and this workshop will enhance the love and connection you all share. Find tickets here
