Virtual Positive Discipline 101 Workshop

1 – 5 years

Fee: $25 per person

Open

Positive discipline is a great parenting tool that is simple to learn!

When it comes to behavior, life with toddlers and preschoolers can often be quite challenging!  Do you find yourself wondering how to handle difficult behaviors?  Are you wondering what behaviors are age-appropriate and which ones need disciplining? What does ‘discipline’ mean anyway? Are you wondering about ‘time-outs’, how to use them or if they are even effective? What are other discipline and limit-setting options? Our positive discipline class will answer all your questions, provide plenty of personal guidance, and give you and your partner tried-and-true tactics to use at home.

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. Our goal is for parents to leave this workshop feeling knowledgeable and confident.

Virtual Visual Scheduling Workshop

Fee: $25 virtual parent workshop

Open

Early childhood educators and therapists have used picture schedules and social stories for years. Now you can learn how to use these strategies to help your own young child to adjust to change, to successfully transition to a non preferred activity (bedtime anyone?). In this workshop you will learn how using picture schedules and social stories can set your kids for success and reduce tantrums and behavioral issues.

Often for young children it is easier to understand pictures than words especially when anxious or upset. Some benefits of starting children with visual schedules at an early age…

-Allows the routine to be clear and predictable

-Reduces anxiety and behavior problems

-Helps children see how their days and routines are scheduled and gives them a tool to refer to during the day

You will be emailed your Zoom link 24 hours before this virtual workshop.
