¿Tu hijo pasa mucho tiempo castigado? 

¿Te preocupa ser demasiado estricto o demasiado débil? 

¿Frecuentemente piensas si hay una mejor manera? 

Los niños criados con disciplina positiva tienen mayor confianza y cooperan más. Descubrirás que existen costumbres que los padres repiten de generación en generación y que no funcionan; por el contrario, aumentan el mal comportamiento. 

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.

 ¿Deseas que sus hijos tengan confianza y cooperen?

Hay maneras más fáciles y mejores de ganar la confianza de tu hijo y lograr su cooperación, todo con el objetivo de lograr una convivencia más sana y un hogar más calmado. 

Participando en esta clase lograrás: 

● Aplicar prácticas de relajación mental que ayudarán a reducir tu estrés y el de tu hijo. ● Construir reglas y rutinas familiares para aumentar la cooperación 

● Aplicar métodos positivos que fortalezcan la conexión padre e hijo 

Esta lección se complementa mejor con nuestra clase “Disciplina Positiva que funciona”

The teenage years can be an exciting time of growth, but can also be a strain on your relationship. As your child enters the tween and teen years their brain changes in ways that leads them to create their tribe of peers. This may mean that they are less likely to seek the advice and validation of adults but it doesn’t mean they don’t need your calm, consistent guidance and support. As always, our “conversations” will include plenty of time for your questions and comments and to share your successes and challenges with each other. After this conversation led by Peace at Home Parenting Experts Amy Alamar, EdD and Aaron Weintraub, MS you will be able to:

  • Start and maintain an open dialogue
  • Develop an authentic and honest relationship with your child
  • Support your child in dealing with his/her social life
  • Discuss difficult subjects openly and positively
  • Apply steps to navigate teens’ romantic relationships with trust, compassion, clarity and consistency
  • Apply positive discipline approaches that increase cooperation

We recommend that you review the following flash classes available from your parenting library before this conversation, but if life gets in the way please come as you are!

  • Talking to Teens: 10 Strategies to Reduce the Conflict
  • Build Extraordinary Relationships with Your Teen through Daily Conversations
  • Parenting Teens: Effective Discipline
