This is a six-week workshop based on the book How to Talk so Kids will Listen and Listen so Kids will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. It is a “how-to”, “hands on”, positive, strength-based series of classes. How do we get our kids to listen to us, to clean up their toys, to believe in themselves, to feel capable and confident? Simply by learning the skills necessary to help children feel cooperative. When we speak to children with this time-tested, respectful, down-to-earth, and effective approach, they will be more likely to listen to us! We just need to learn how to change our words (and our attitude) to help encourage the best in our children.
You will learn specific skills and strategies that you can apply right away for positive changes within your family including how to:
• Discipline without hurting or alienating
• Cope with your child’s negative feelings of frustration, disappointment, anger, etc.
• Engage your child’s willing cooperation
• Help your child develop a realistic and positive self-image
• Foster an atmosphere of love and respect
• Set firm limits and still maintain goodwill
• Resolve conflicts peacefully
Workshops are appropriate for parents with kids of all ages as well as kids with ADHD and special needs (although special needs will not be specifically addressed the skills and philosophy are quite helpful and applicable).
