When children don’t listen, how do you stay calm and not lose your temper? How do you know which strategies to use for each situation? Based on years of clinical experience and the latest research, Dr. Rosenthal teaches parents specific and concrete skills and scripts that really work. Parents will learn how to reduce conflict and prevent typical child behaviors from becoming bigger problems. Warning! This is not a boring, passive lecture. This workshop will be fun and engaging and may cause serious improvements in your parenting skills!
After attending this workshop, parents will know how to:
- Recognize the function of different behaviors and respond accordingly
- Recognize and respond to minor vs major misbehaviors appropriately
- Enhance the parent-child relationship via specialized play skills
- Create routine and behavior charts for repetitive and difficult behaviors
- Give indirect and direct commands with appropriate follow-through
- Manage morning, bedtime, homework, meal-time and screen-time routines
- Give an effective time-out (ages 2-6) or loss of privilege (ages 7+)
- Co-parent collaboratively and think “big picture” about the family culture
