* The ZONES of REGULATION * FREE Parenting Workshop

December 8 6-8pm Drumheller Elim Church

Self-regulation is something everyone continually works on, whether we are aware of it or not. We all encounter trying situations that test our self-control. If we can recognize when we are becoming less regulated, we can do something to feel better and to get ourselves to a better place. This comes naturally for some, but for others it is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced. This is the goal of The Zones of Regulation.
