Release Date: 2/16/2011 10:02:15 AM
Do you sometimes wish your kids came with a manual? Do you feel out of control? Are your child’s challenging behaviors interfering with family life? A series of free parenting workshops will be held on March 8, 16, 22, and 29, 2011, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Carroll Springs School in Westminster. The workshops, entitled Positive Solutions for Families, will offer a positive approach to behavior intervention and parenting in general.
The theory and techniques are based on fostering a child’s social emotional development. During the four consecutive weeks, the workshops will provide ideas for helping children feel safe, loved and special; feel competent and confident; and build relationships and develop friendships. The workshops will also give ideas to parents on how to help children learn to follow directions, manage their emotions, let others know what their behavior is trying to communicate, and learn new skills to replace challenging behavior.
To register, please call Cindy Senseney at 410-751-3955. Please note that these workshops are for adults only and childcare will not be available. A light dinner will be provided. Participants will receive presentation materials, a workshop binder, and “make and take” helpers. There also will be door prizes.
