We are thrilled to have Elisabeth Stitt, founder of Joyful Parenting Coaching, present at our next Speaker and Social Series Event in September!
She will be giving on talk on managing child behaviors:
All parents desire certain behavior from their kids, but it can be hard to know how to get our children to behave well. Sometimes that is because we don’t set our kids up for success. In this workshop, learn 3 Tips for helping your kids show up with their best behavior:
•Provide regular routines for optimal food, sleep and exercise
•Make your expectations exceedingly clear
•Pre-teach skills and practice them before they are needed
Then, for those times when a consequence is needed, learn what makes an effective consequence:
•Its purpose is not to humiliate or punish
•It teaches or reinforces the skills needed for next time
•It allows the child to make amends quickly and move on
While no one approach will get your kids’ cooperation all of the time, it is absolutely possible to get kids’ cheerful cooperation more often than not!
Elisabeth is an author, parent educator, coach and retired school teacher, but first and foremost she is a mother and a stepmother. She offers one-on-one parent coaching, group sessions, workshops, virtual mom meet ups, and roundtable discussions about parenting.
