1–2–3 MAGIC
Effective discipline for ages 2 to 12

This is a one session workshop for parents and teachers.

Who’s in charge in your home or class?

Parents and teachers often become frustrated by their children’s repeated behaviours such as whining, arguing and screaming, and end up in the ”Talk-Persuade-Argue-Yell-Hit“ syndrome.

This dynamic workshop will give practical parenting skills to:

  • stop the obnoxious behaviour;
  • get your children to do homework, get up in the morning, do chores, and much more

Parents will gain concrete parenting strategies to:

  • encourage communication with your child
  • develop better school / parent relations
  • avoid the parent ”guilt trap“

This informative workshop will be offered on the following dates. All workshops run from 6:30 – 9:30 pm
