How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk
For parents of children all ages
In this 6 week series, participants will develop skills to communicate more effectively with children through role-plays, written exercises and readings from books. The sessions focus on acknowledging feelings, engaging cooperation, problem solving, autonomy, praise and self-esteem. Participants will learn ways to rewrite what Dr. Robert Brook talks about as the “…negative script we act with our children”.
This Faber/Mazlish workshop series is facilitated by Susan Nason. Susan has 38 years of experience leading this workshop as well as a “Siblings Without Rivalry” workshop. She retired from her position as the Assistant to Director of the First Presbyterian Church Nursery School to devote her time to teaching compassionate and effective parenting techniques and skills to parents. She brings her great respect for the experience of parenting into each session.
The “How To Talk” workbook will be provided for each participant at the first class. Participants will need to purchase copies of the Faber & Mazlish books Liberated Parents/Liberated Children and How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk which will be used during the workshop.
Class is limited to 10 participants.
