Positive Discipline for Young Children - CC
From Kristal Nicholson
Along with their delightful, curious nature, very young children can also be puzzling and sometimes even frustrating to deal with! How do we help them learn to cooperate with parents’ wishes, and harness and even promote that curiosity so that they learn about the world? How do we help them learn to manage their BIG feelings in ways that fit with the culture of our homes? And what kinds of rules will help them develop so that they not only survive in this world, but also thrive? These are some of the questions we will consider and discuss in this workshop. Starting with general principles of Ages and Stages, and Parenting Styles and Rules in the home, we will discuss approaches to discipline that promote healthy development and well-being. We will discuss the purpose of discipline, problem prevention, and some useful techniques to design consequences and handle problems when they occur.
