How To Get Your Children To Behave Without Messing Them Up
Do find yourself yelling at your kids and then walking away thinking, "That wasn't how it was supposed to go"? Do you find yourself frustrated with your child's behaviour, but feel lost as to how to support him? Do you feel as though you're reverting back to old methods - such as time-outs and groundings - simply because you're exhausted and don't know what else to do?
Discipline Without Damage is a seven week, self-paced course that incorporates both video and reflective exercises in order to help you better understand not only your child's behaviour, but also yourself. Dr Vanessa Lapointe will guide you through a series of lessons designed to help you understand why children behave the way they do, as well as what they need in times of upset and stress. You will also understand why you react the way you do to certain behaviours, and will change aspects of your parenting practice so that you can have a household of peace, compassion and relationship.
