The cost is $150 for one person per workshop. If multiple family members enroll, the charge is $120 per family member.

There are no requirements for participation in workshops other than a willingness to try new parenting approaches. Class size will be limited. The total fee for any class is charged at the time of registration, and there are no refunds.
