January 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, happening 2 times
Being a parent is hard work! There is no other job that is so challenging – yet so rewarding. Nobody teaches you how to be a parent. It is trial and error. Therefore, many parents struggle on a daily basis to eﬀectively manage their child’s behavior. When parents learn how to eﬀectively redirect behaviors through understanding the reasons for the behaviors, there is family harmony: children are raised in a respectful and peaceful environment. They learn how to assume responsibility for their own actions. They begin to feel empowered from within themselves rather then from external forces. There are logical consequences for behaviors which increases self-esteem and cooperation skills. Everyone wins when children understand that their parents are not trying to control them and are working to create a more respectful and cooperative family unit.
During these parenting sessions with Lin Starman, MS Ed. parents will learn strategies to begin to build a ‘tool box’ of skills to eﬀectively manage behaviors without yelling, threatening or punishing.
* Session 2> Discipline that gets results—January 22
* Session 3> NO! I Won’t and You Can’t Make Me! – January 29
