Parenting and discipline styles have changed over the years, from the old blind obedience to behavior modifications based on punishment and reward or even to our present day behavior affirmation, often expressed as the ‘good job’ culture.
While these tools have their place, this presentation will set out three cumulative discipline phases. Firstly, training creative compliance for the young child, secondly, building emotional skills for the elementary age, and lastly, for the teenager, managing critical choices.
This presentation will provide a developmental roadmap to help parents and educators establish the kind of preventative discipline that is both nurturing and effective. Join us for a lively conversation and RSVP on Facebook here!
Childcare will be available at City of Lakes Waldorf School for enrolled students at a charge of $5 per child on a first come, first served basis. Please contact the front desk to register at 612.767.1550. Looking forward to seeing you there!
