Target age: parents of toddlers and preschool-aged children

There’s a fine balance between encouraging independence and setting limits with your young children. Toddlers and preschool-aged children need lots of opportunities to be autonomous and to be able to make their own choices. However, they also need to know they’re not in charge. Setting clear and effective limits supports children's development, helps them feel safe and encourages self-discipline as they grow.

How do we as parents support our children's independent journey while setting boundaries and expectations? Drawing on her 30+ years’ experience in early childhood education, Sally Tannen will provide you with the practical tips and effective strategies
 for setting limits with empathy and trust that you can use immediately.

Sally Tannen has over 30 years of education experience working with parents and helping them cope with their questions, fears and challenges. Before 92Y, she worked as an educator and administrator for three New York independent schools: Little Red School House, Village Community School, and St. Luke’s School. Sally has also taught in the Early Childhood Department at Kingsborough Community College and has led workshops at Bank Street College of Education.

Sally has an MA in Early Childhood Education from Bank Street College of Education and a BA in English from Washington University in St. Louis. She has attended the Reggio Emilia Study Tour in Italy and Brazelton Touchpoints training. Sally has four children and three grandchildren and lives in New York with her husband.
