Positive Discipline and Dealing With Temper Tantrums (birth-3)

During this workshop you will learn how to effectively use positive discipline and limit setting, to help your child begin to internalize “the rules” and learn self-control.  We will discuss how consistency helps children feel safe and builds self-esteem, as well as how it reinforces discipline and limit setting.   You’ll learn about developmentally appropriate expectations and think about your child’s temperament and your parenting style. Finally, we’ll talk about “fighting the battles worth winning” and how to handle temper tantrums.  And, of course, there will be plenty of time for Q and A.

Creating A Sibling Symphony

In this workshop parents will find out how to prepare their child for the arrival of a new sibling. We’ll talk about when to tell your child and how to help them transition into their new role as older brother or sister. We’ll also discuss “sibling rivalry” and some of the most common reasons why children fight. Parents will learn how to help siblings resolve conflict, when to intervene, and how to encourage a positive, loving relationship between their children.

Wednesday March 7th with TLB Music:

Responsive Parenting and the Value of a Flexible Routine (birth-6)

Attendees of this seminar will consider their child’s temperament and age in an effort to help inform their parenting. Emotionally responsive parents reflect their child’s feelings and set consistent limits that help their children feel safe. Including a flexible routine allows children to feel secure, while also being able to manage typical changes in their routine.
