Setting Limits Compassionately (Don’t Miss This Amazing 1-Night Workshop!)
PUNISHMENTS and REWARDS: What to do Instead
Setting boundaries that work with children
Parenting is a life-long learning process of nurturing our connection with our children. Parenting is “messy” business. There is no “prescription” for dealing with the day-to-day challenges of raising children. There are however, basic communication tools that can assist parents in dealing positively with challenges, while deepening the relationship between parent and child.
This workshop will focus on limit-setting techniques which support children in developing the ability to set safe limits for themselves. Discussion points to include:
- The risks associated with punishment and reward
- Why limits are important
- Preventing conflict
Date: Thursday, February 23
Time: 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Location: Riviera PlaySchool
Cost: $10 each for RPS parents/ $20 each for general public
