What does this parenting webinar explore?


Effective child management is typically impacted by parental beliefs and values that influence our parenting abilities (90%) and the implementation of specific parenting skills (10%). This powerful one-hour live interactive webinar explores parental beliefs and values (the 90%) that could limit or reduce child behavior improvement. Unless these beliefs and values are identified and addressed, very little progress, if any, can be made to improve child misbehavior.

This webinar explores:
  • Whether discipline is responsible for behavior change,
  • At what age parents should begin disciplining their child,
  • Disciplining an ADHD child,
  • Whether psychotropic medication cures misbehavior, and
  • Preventing parental burnout

Who should attend?

This webinar is extremely beneficial to parents (especially of strong-willed children), educators, and anyone else who works with children.
