Understanding Children's Emotions

SCPL News

Understanding Children's Emotions Led by Instructor-in-Training Beth Hernandez-Jason

When our children get upset over the littlest things, it's easy to lose our temper and wonder what's the matter with them!

 

In this free talk, we'll discuss why our children get so emotional and how we can help them get back on track. You'll leave this talk with practical parenting tools you can put to work right away!

 

  Beth is the mom of two children, and she has been using Hand in Hand tools since her youngest child was born. She loves sharing tools to help parents handle tantrums, whining, sharing, and sibling rivalry.

Whether you've never taken a Positive Discipline parenting class before, or have done so in the past, this intensive 3-week (6-hour) series is for you! Among other things, we'll be reviewing the concepts and tools for parents to model mutual respect, kindness and firmness at the same time, discipline instead of punishment, solutions instead of consequences, and encouragement instead of praise and rewards, all of which will strengthen the positive long-term relationship you and your children deserve to enjoy and will help your children to do the right things even when nobody is watching!
