A NESCA Workshop in New Hampshire:
"Be The Parent You Want To Be" A New Way of Parenting Kids
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. Unlike traditional models of discipline, the CPS approach avoids the use of power, control and motivational procedures and focuses instead on building healthy relationships and thinking skills.
This All-day Workshop Will Help Parents To:
- Shift their thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with their child/teenager
- Reduce their child's challenging behavior
- Solve problems collaboratively and proactively
- Build their child/teen's skills in self-regulation, communication and problem-solving
