Join us as we present a series of two-hour workshops that serve as stand alone classes and as an introduction to the principles of Redirecting Children’s Behavior. Pertinent topics are addressed in a short digestible format in order to provide you with an opportunity to learn and interact with other parents. See our event calendar for specific dates and locations.
We believe that the most effective parenting occurs when both parents act as a loving, unified, and cooperative team. This workshop addresses ways to synergize, communicate, and build a foundation of consistency in parenting that promotes positive and peaceful communication.
We all want and need to feel that we have a sense of power in our lives. Power struggles are the result of feeling powerless or out of control. We explore the dynamics of power struggles and explore ways to gain cooperation without yelling, threatening, bribing or nagging.
- Understanding Temperament
Temperament is one of the most underrated influences in a child’s life. Many times it is the primary driving force in conflicts and misbehavior in children, as well as adults. We will learn about the different temperament styles and common behaviors that stem from each style. We will learn how to redirect behaviors that often go unnoticed and are misunderstood.
- Bully-Proof Your Children
We take a close look at bullying behavior, what it is, its causes and what we as parents can do about bullying. We will explore different kinds of bullying and learn tools to bully-proof your children, whether caught in the cycle as the bully, the victim or the bystander.
Anger is an energizing, self-protective, emotional response to a perceived threat from a stressor. In this workshop, we discuss the emotional triggers and responses of anger, and learn techniques to become present, minimize yelling, and reduce stressful situations.
