You know your kids are going to do things that frustrate you.
But... that doesn't help you stay calm when it happens.
So you yell, threaten, and even say awful things in the heat of the moment.
And you're left with regrets (and guilt) instead of the behavior you want.
In The StudyPro's, December Lunch and Learn, Rachel Bailey, M.A. and Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator will share the science behind why it is so hard to stay calm when your kids are pushing your buttons. You'll also learn strategies and tips for staying calm -- even when your kids are pushing you to your limits -- so that you can address your child's behavior more effectively.
Rachel will also help you:
- Better understand your triggers
- Know what to do and say in the moment (instead of threats)
- Learn strategies to stay calm (which is more effective than anger)
She will cover both "in-the-moment" as well as proactive strategies to help us feel more in control as parents as well as in all of our daily interactions.
THE STUDYPRO WILL ALSO BE HOSTING A 6-WEEK WORKSHOP
"REAL STRATEGIES TO MAKE PARENTING EASIER"
