¿Te preocupa ser demasiado estricto o demasiado débil? 

¿Frecuentemente piensas si hay una mejor manera?

Quienes participen de esta clase podrán: 

● Reconocer costumbres ineficaces que influyen en el comportamiento de los padres 

● Evitar conductas que pueden dañar la conexión padre e hijo y la autoestima de los niños. 

● Aplica métodos de disciplina, basados en evidencias reales, que son efectivos aun con los niños más desafiantes 

Esta clase funciona mejor cuando es tomada en conjunto con la clase “Deja de regañar y gritar: Establece un ambiente de cooperación”

How do I know if my child needs therapy? 

What is my role in my child’s therapy? 

How do I know if therapy is working? 

Children develop in unique ways and there is a wide range of behaviors that may be normal for a given child. Some children are especially sensitive, others tend toward the more active, even aggressive side. Parents help children cope with negative emotions and learn to regulate their 

behavior. This is all part of typical child development and the challenges of being a parent At times, children’s difficulties managing their own feelings and their behavior may become more serious or they may last longer than a few weeks. If children are having problems in more than one setting (both at home and at school), if they appear distressed or upset for more than a few weeks, if your efforts to address the problem have not been successful and if their behavior is getting in the way of their normal activities, it may be time to seek guidance from a therapist. 

This class will help you think about how to choose a therapist and what to expect from the therapy experience for your child. You will learn practical ways that you can be helpful to your child and ways you can expect your child’s therapist to help both you and your child. You will learn about the importance of setting realistic goals and how to know if your child and your family are making progress towards those goals. Therapy can make a positive difference for your child and for your relationship, especially when you know how to be an active and positive part of the process.

The way we praise children affects how they see themselves. The language we use can actually help or hinder their desire to learn and their level of effort, as well as their ability to stick with a challenging task. You might be surprised to learn that telling your child how smart they are can actually decrease effort. Research tells us that we can help even discouraged children cope with frustration and see failure as an opportunity to learn rather than giving up. Use specific, powerful feedback to encourage your child to take appropriate risks and feel more confident to try new things. 

After this class, you will be able to: 

● Explain to your child how their brains change when they try new things 

● Give feedback using language that supports your child’s self-worth and enthusiasm for learning 

● Coach your child back to confidence after a failure 

● Recognize areas in your life where your own fixed thinking may affect your child’s behavior and self-worth
