Butterfly Effect – Influencing Change in my Child’s Behaviour
As a parent, what can you do when you find yourself saying, ‘my kids don’t listen’ and you’re tired of, pulling your hair out, counting to ten, gritting your teeth, explaining, reasoning, reminding, distracting, punishing, cajoling, bribing, begging or ignoring but nothing works?
This fun, interactive workshop will provide you with practical steps for using a guidance approach to influence your child's behaviour. When a guidance approach is used in daily interactions with children, we enable children to develop intrinsic controls for their behaviour. In this way, we can provide children with tools that will truly empower them for a lifetime…and give you back your sanity!
