1148d – Webinar – Getting a New Perspective on Your Child’s Behavior
(October 2015) Ever wonder where your child came up with their behavior or those words? Does it seem like nothing you do stops the behavior you hate? Does the behavior exhaust you? If so, then your child is trying to tell you something but does not know how to express themselves outside of their behavior. When children think that you “just don’t get it,” their behavior often becomes louder and more dramatic for you to pay attention. This workshop will teach you the meaning of Childology and how to shift your perspective and find the words so that you can connect instead of react. You will learn the steps of Connective Communication so your child learns how to use their words instead of reacting dramatically and so peace can be restored in your family.
