Monday, November 19th from 5:30-7 in the Community Meeting Room | Positive Discipline Workshop
Do you sometimes feel like you’re out of ideas? Is what worked for one child not working for another, or not working as well as it used to? Do you ever wonder if you could get the results you desire in ways that feel better for both you and your child?
Join us as we explore a variety of positive discipline methods and techniques to add to your parenting tool box! These techniques are evidence-based, and draw on what research can tell us about brain development, psychology, and communication at all ages and stages—as well as what we can learn from the experience of being a REAL parent in the real world! This free, informative parenting workshop is presented by Emily Buckhalter, of KVCAP. Pizza and beverages will be served.
