Positive Discipline

This workshop draws from attachment theory, Emotion Coaching, and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy treatments that are aimed at addressing disruptive behavior in young children. 

By the end of the evening you will know how to:
- Transform negative, attention-seeking behaviours to positive, praise-worthy changes in your child
- Respond appropriately to tantrums and melt-downs
- Phrase instructions to your child that they will understand and respond to more quickly
- Effectively choose when your child is able to learn from their behaviour and when they are not
- Connect with your child through specialized attachment-focused, self-esteem-boosting playtime in just 5 to 10 minutes per day.

You will leave with a set of tools and handouts to help you apply your new skills right away!
