Positive Discipline Strategies for Caregivers
Tuesday, December 1 • 10 a.m.
Learn some positive discipline strategies (that really work!) for toddlers and preschoolers. Talk about what to do when your child is behaving well, how you can control the situation (instead of the child or their emotions), reasons why your child may be misbehaving, and what skill or value you are teaching when you correct/manage your child’s behavior. Through these strategies, you will begin to develop a long-range parenting approach that can create positive outcomes for children. Children are welcome at this program. Click here to sign up.
