Beyond Parenting Tips: Translating Parenting Concepts into Effective Parental Behaviors October 25, 2012 at 11:00am to 1:30pm 

Ever wonder why all those amazing tips from friends, parents and books never seem to consistently work?  Have you attended many parenting workshops but are still not getting better results. If you are you tired of the endless battles with your children and perhaps even your spouse over what is the right way to deal with child misbehavior this workshop will teach you how to translate concepts into effective parent behaviors to get the results you want without nagging, complaining, yelling and threatening.

This workshop is different because it will be interactive and focused on how to DO the Concepts, not just study them. The therapist will actually be demonstrating principals through role playing and videos. She'll demonstrate what works and doesn't work- and explain why. She'll  show you what your child sees and probably (mis) understands from your behavior based on your child's brain development.

In order for parents to be effective they must first understand their child's developmental and cognitive capabilities. Second, parents must explore some of their own beliefs that may be preventing them from being effective and third parents must evaluate what their behavior is communicating to their child and see if it is consistent with the message you actually want them to get.

Outcomes of this workshop:

  • Learn key child cognitive and developmental stages so that you can better assess age appropriateness of popular parenting tools and interventions
  • Identify your parenting goals and separate these from Parent's needs and Parent's wants
  • Understand from a science and evidence based way why neither the “carrot” nor “the stick” are optimal parenting strategies for long term discipline or learning
  • Develop parenting framework that will allow you to apply and do parenting concepts effectively.

This will be a hands on and interactive workshop. It is designed to get your going in the right direction of creating a parenting strategy. If you have more questions about this workshop, please do not hesitate to contact us to learn more.
