– Designing Consequences
Ever have your children do something and think “what do I do about this”? Figuring out consequences can be frustrating and tricky. This class focuses on how to create and implement effective consequence and help teach our kids responsibility.
– The Power of Empathy
Empathy is the foundation for strong relationships and better communication with our kids.
Want your children to feel you are on their side while holding them accountable? Empathy is an effective communication tool that strengthens relationships between parent and child while literally priming the brain into a thinking frame of mind. When pairing empathy and consequences the child feels their feelings are valid and are better able to learn. Empathy is not natural, so please join us in learning the benefits of empathy and how to use it to enhance your parenting.
– Turning Your Words into Gold
As parents it is easy to get sucked into trying to control what we cannot truly control. By using enforceable statements in our communication with our children we can avoid this trap and set limits by telling kids what WE will do or allow, rather than trying to tell THEM what to do. Come learn how to apply this strategy and benefit by increasing your child’s cooperation, having fewer arguments, and stopping control battles.
