Children often act in ways that can leave caregivers feeling confused, exasperated, angry, disappointed, exhausted, helpless, and even ashamed and embarrassed. Are you parenting a child who frequently has tantrums, does not listen to directions, defies rules, argues with others, refuses to get up in the morning or go to bed at night, or avoids tasks like school work or chores? This training will help you to better understand your child’s most challenging behaviors and teach you concrete strategies for responding more calmly and effectively, while maintaining a positive connection between the two of you. Come learn new perspectives and parenting techniques, in an environment of communal support and encouragement!
