Interactive Workshops

School Age


School Age Children, who recognize and can manage their emotions as well as recognize and influence the emotions of others, tend to be more successful. You play a big role in teaching your child these important skills, mainly through modeling behavior.

You probably won’t be surprised to learn that through punishment you might scare a child into following directions in the short run, but you don’t get long-term behavior changes. Mountains of research has shown without doubt that children seek connection with their parents and those parents who focus that connection on positive behavior, win more cooperation.  Learn more about the School Age child brain-body-behavior connection and proven solutions to confidently build more connection and cooperation in these live workshop titles.

Be Your Child’s Calm Center
Young children thrive in calm and playful families. Play is the best way to help your child learn and grow.

How to Keep the Temperature Down in Your Family: Rules, Routines, and Positive Discipline that Works
Do morning routines drive you a little crazy? Does trash only get taken out after a zillion reminders? Stop the nagging, complaining, and punishing. Consider positive discipline and the practical strategies that support children to be more responsible. Parents who focus on the negative tend to have less time to meaningfully connect with their children. There are many positive discipline parenting tools that will help to create smoother family routines. These same tools will also help your children to be more responsible. Join other parents to learn how rules, routines and positive discipline instead of punishment will lead to a better connection with your children.
