Four-Part Workshop Starts Weds., 4/27 AM: Be the Parent You Want to Be - A New Way of Understanding and Parenting Kids

From The Ely Center

April 4, 2016

Back by Popular Demand!

Do you ever feel frustrated with your child? Find yourself shouting often and imposing punishments or rewards in reaction to challenging behavior? Do you wish you had a more effective parenting approach that also helps to build a better relationship between you and your child?

The Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach, based in MGH's Department of Psychiatry, provides parents with concrete tools to better understand and parent their kids in the face of day-to-day challenges – e.g., getting to school, homework, bedtime, screen time – and more serious challenges.

It’s based on the understanding that many kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance.

  • Shift their thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with their child
  • Reduce their child’s challenging behavior
  • Build their child's self-regulation, communication and problem-solving skills
  • Solve problems collaboratively and proactively

When:   10:00am - Noon; Four (4) Wednesday mornings
                   from April 27 - May 18th

                   84 Rowe Street
                   Newton, Ma 02466

Cost:      $185 per person for all four session
