At Mama Pajama’s Playhouse, our motto is “Rest Time Is The Best Time!” We believe that daily transitional time from the busyness of work and play is necessary for our bodies and minds to rest, recharge, and re-energize so that we can be our very best in the lives we lead. We use our live, interactive music and story shows, as well as our online concerts and story times to encourage and reinforce positive rest time perceptions to our audiences in a fun and entertaining way. This particular show is available in three formats - music only (entertainment-based), music only (entertainment + education), or as a story show, which uses both music and storytelling (entertainment = education). This show is primarily intended for children age 3-7, and of course their parents!

Anger Management / Dealing with Difficult People Everyone can benefit from anger management training. We live in a very complex, stressful world. Managing anger and violence in our homes, communities, schools and workplace has taken on new definitions and implications. Anger spans across generational, social, cultural and geographical borders. In business, CEO’s, human resource managers, labor relations attorneys and customer service managers are realizing that managing anger and having the ability to “keep your cool” is essential to • Better customer service • Customer satisfaction • Solid trusting coworker relationships • Teamwork • Productivity • Problem solving • Workplace safety • Employee retention • Physical and mental health Understanding distinctions between assertive vs. aggressive communication and good listening skills are necessary components of anger free communication; being able to “walk away” and “let go” of unpleasant situations instead of expressing anger in unacceptable ways. Distinctions among different communication styles are explored and role-plays may be included in the workshop. Skillful anger and stress management techniques are taught and practiced in our seminars with coaching and training for appropriate communication skills necessary for managing anger.
