    Toddlers:  Tender, Terrific, and Tenacious!  They dig in - NO! - throw tantrums, then ten minutes later melt your heart with the most honest hug or act of kindness.  They tumble and get back up again. They dump out the tidy contents of a drawer and then sit in it looking pleased. They cause us to lose sleep and to lose our patience. They are also masters of observation, scientists, spiritual gurus, and our future.  Understanding your toddler can help avoid some of the fuss and frustrations of living with them, especially during COVID.  Join us for this FREE 5 week series on Parenting Your Toddler 

    Series Topics: 

    1. What does science say is happening in that little body and brain? What are your big questions?

    2. Self-regulation/co-regulation/positive guidance, I just want her to get in the carseat!

    3. Magic of rituals in daily routines: eating, sleeping, bathing, and saying good-bye.  Avoiding tantrums and conflicts.

    4. The power of play. Seeing what’s driving those repeated actions

    5. Get outside and get active. So many benefits for you and your toddler.

    6. Self-care: mindfulness, a hot drink, and can you pee alone?

    Resources and helpful links  provided on all topics.

    Bios for our speakers; 

    Ashley Barker is a chiropractor at Impact Health. Becoming a new mom, Ashley realized there was a significant gap in the healthcare system when it comes to women’s health. She noticed many of her patients continued to suffer from various conditions stemming from pregnancy and childbirth. This passion led to her taking additional courses in postpartum rehabilitation and wanting to raise the standard of care for women in her community.

    Pam Rocca is a vibrant nutritionist, author and health coach who is passionate about simplifying health and healthy eating and making it work for you. Pam works with women to help promote healthy habits and a healthy relationship with food and body image from a place of self-love. 

    Melissa White is a certified Personal Trainer and Post-Natal Fitness Coach. As a Mom herself, Melissa not only works to help pregnant and postpartum mamas to safely recover physically - but emotionally and mentally coming to a place of body acceptance, to practice patience with themselves and to learn how to regain control over their lives and their bodies. She works to end the shame postpartum women feel around encompassing a different body and the fear around talking about postpartum struggles.

    Normal Infant Sleep - a look at normal infant sleep in the first year of life with Sleep Consultant Daphne Dunlap of Aligned Littles Sleep

    Daphne is a Baby-Led Sleep & Well Being Specialist whose passion is supporting families in getting more sleep without using traditional sleep training. Her goal is to educate our community on normal and safe infant sleep throughout the first year of life. She believes that your relationship with your baby is the most important and her approach is rooted in attachment theory (which is different from attachment parenting). During her presentation she will be busting some common myths about infant sleep, sharing five red flags that could interfere with sleep, and giving you tips and tricks for creating the most optimal conditions for everyone in your household to get more sleep. Daphne empowers all mamas to tune in to their baby, trust their instincts, and follow their heart. She always encourages mothers to keep the parts of their sleep routine that they love and supports them in making changes to anything that is no longer working for them.

    An important new initiative has been launched through a collaboration between Children’s Healthcare Canada, the Pediatric Chairs of Canada, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research - Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health and UNICEF Canada called Inspiring Healthy Futures (#WeCANforKids).

    Join us for an interactive session to help us identify key priorities to support child, youth and family health across Canada!

    Working in collaboration with passionate stakeholders, we are facilitating a series of conversations to co-design a framework to improve the health and well-being of children, youth and families in Canada. This cross-sector framework will inform research priorities, advance innovation in health service delivery and training, and support policies to improve health and well-being.

    Your voice as a family member is vitally important.

    Sample of the topics we will discuss:

    • What is most important to you about how kids, youth and families across Canada are supported to thrive?
    • What are the biggest health and well-being issues that you and the families you know face today?
    • If you could imagine a future where children, youth and families across Canada were thriving in every sense… what kinds of things would we see.

    More information on the Inspiring Healthy Futures initiative can be found here: https://www.wecanforkids.ca/

    I hope you can join me for this important discussion,
    Claire
