Have you ever felt so angry and frustrated with your child’s misbehavior that you wanted to ground him for a year? That’s what happens when we don’t have a tool. We become more and more frustrated, and sometimes it can lead to an explosion.
Not having the right discipline tools can leave us feeling helpless. We try a punishment, but that doesn’t
fix the behavior, so we up the ante and make it longer or more severe, and when that doesn’t work, we turn up the heat even more, hoping that we’re going to create so much discomfort that they’ll think twice about doing that naughty thing again.
What is the goal of discipline, and what is our role in the process? In this workshop, Jenni and Jody will explore the purposes of training our children and offer a wide range of tools to fill your child training toolbox, including preventative measures, natural consequences, positive and negative reinforcement and corrective conversations. They’ll also teach the Extinction Method for overcoming tantrums.
