Course format

Learn how to motivate children effectively with descriptive praise and how to be an emotion coach. You will learn how to set things up to go well with setting up for success and how to establishing rules and routines in your home. Week 5 is about positive discipline – how to get our children to learn from their mistakes and keep their dignity.

The 10 week course includes an entire 2.5 hour session dedicated to sibling issues – a common hot spot in families. The final 2 sessions are about the holy grail of parenting – how to remain calm so that we can actually access these skills. We focus on understanding what it is that pushes our buttons and ways to defuse these reactions. These classes will teach you how to access the other skills already learned in situations when they are most needed.
