Confident Parenting: Speaker Series     FREE!
For parents, caregivers and adults who work with children    

Parenting today is not easy or simple.  Since the early years of a child’s life are the most important for their development, parents want to do the best they can for their children but they may not always know how to do that.  This introductory lecture series is the first stop for parents to get an understanding of best practices for parenting young children. Presented in an engaging manner by professionals who really care about kids and families.
Monday, November 30, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. 
In the Eisenhower Room.  Adults only.  No registration required

The Good Enough Parent: How to Respond to Problem Behaviors
We will discuss how to respond to your child's problem behaviors (tantrums, hitting, stealing, etc.) in a way that will ultimately promote their development.  Using concepts from Love and Logic™, Applied Behavior\ Analysis and Daniel Siegel’s No Drama Discipline, we will brainstorm with other parents how to respond to these behaviors with creativity and confidence. Megan Hall, LPC, R-DMT; The Mariposa Center for Infant, Child, and Family Enrichment.
