Misbehavior, Challenging Behaviors, Defiance, and Disobedience: What’s a Parent to Do?
We all know how frustrating it is when we ask our child to do something and they don’t do it.  It is even more maddening when there is outright defiance or repeated misbehaviors.  This presentation will help parents get to the source of their child’s problem behavior and help you come up with solutions that will directly address the problem.  We will help parents develop a number of techniques that are likely to improve their child’s behavior. 

Upcoming workshops:
February 25 - Helping Your Child Develop Resiliency
March 25 - Raising a Child Who Can Manage Their Emotions
April 29 - Helping Your Child Conquer Fears and Anxieties
May 27 - Raising a Child Who Makes Good Choices: How Parents Can Promote Executive Functioning in Their Child.

Confident Parenting: Preventing Challenging Behaviors  pyramid_SM.gif
6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Adults Only, Registration Required @ 720-887-2315.

You must register for each individual workshop separately. Registrations begin on the first of the month for that month’s workshop. Held in the Children's Library Story Room.

This five part workshop, once-a-month, series focuses on research-based strategies and practices which help parents to understand and prevent challenging behavior.  Each workshop focuses on a tier of the Pyramid Plus Social/Emotional Model.  Parenting toddlers and preschoolers can be exhausting and overwhelming. It can also be filled with joy and true connection.  In these workshops,  parents will begin to see themselves as their child's first and most influential teachers while understanding what their child needs to be successful and happy.  To fully understand the process of preventing challenging behaviors, attending all five workshops will be the most beneficial for your family. Click here for the winter/spring 2015 brochure.
Thursday, February 19:  Understanding Your Child's Emotions
Prevent challenging behavior by understanding your child’s emotions.  Learn to recognize, label and understand feelings as this is the basis for children’s ability to control their emotions, develop relationships, interact with others and become effective problem solvers. A strong foundation in emotional vocabulary will allow kids to tolerate frustration better, be healthier, be less lonely and impulsive, be more focused and have greater academic achievement.  In this workshop, parents will be given the tools and resources to teach these essential skills to their children.   
Registration begins February 1
