This practical BEHAVIOUR CHANGE workshop centres around 3 foundation ideas;
1. There is a reason for your child's behaviour
That's right - it is trying to tell us something! As parents we need to be clever and work out what their behaviour is really saying. We need to scratch below it and find what's driving it, instead of simply responding to the irritation it may cause.
2. How behaviour works
- Children continue behaviour when they feel it is being rewarded.
- Children stop behaviour when they feel it is not being rewarded.
Our inconsistency, and sometimes misunderstanding, over what reward really means confuses them! So let's look at the idea of reward together. What is the difference between 'reward' and 'giving attention'? Let's look at tweaking this together.
3. It takes an intelligent plan to manage kids wisely!
And, this is even more so in the tricky moments. So let's get up close and personal and fine tune your style so you leave invigorated to try a few new fresh ideas in the tricky moments!
New brain research confirms that how we live, how love our children, interact with them and regulate our own lives has a big influence on how our kids' brains develop. We are the key to their future! The secret to success lies in our capacity to review whether what we are doing is actually working for our kids, and if it's not, to tweak it so it advantages family life, and their future.
