Nature & Nurturing: Parenting with Your Child’s Temperament in Mind

Saturday, January 25, 2020
University of Washington, Center for Child and Family Well-Being
Liliana Lengua, PhD

Nature & Nurturing: Parenting with Your Child’s Temperament in Mind

9:00 am – 12:00 pm
CCFW, 3903 Brooklyn Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105

Register here.

Workshop Description

Is your child the one clinging to you at the door when you try to drop him off at a birthday party, too nervous to join the party? Or was your child the one that was so excited to get to the party that she darted into the street even after you just got done telling her to stay right by the car when she got out? Or did you not even make it to the party because your child was so frustrated and angry about having to wear a jacket that he broke down into a total crying and yelling fit?

And were you feeling self-conscious that other parents were viewing you as ineffective and not in control of your child?

Some of these challenging behaviors from our children can stem from their temperament – the emotional and self-regulation characteristics that they are born with. Many children present challenging emotional and behavioral responses to every-day situations, and these experiences can be very stressful for parents and families. It’s not always clear what is the most effective way to deal with these behaviors – should a parent use more negative consequences? More rewards? Be more firm? More gentle? Pick your battles? Stick to your guns? More importantly, children can present these challenging behaviors for very different underlying reasons depending on their temperament, and parents can be more effective if they understand the source of their children’s reactions. Little if any parenting advice that is available to parents provides the critical understanding of the role of children’s temperament in shaping children’s behavior and our parenting. This interactive presentation will provide an opportunity to learn about:

1. The sources of children’s temperament or individual differences in their reactions.
2. How temperament can elicit less-than-ideal parenting from even the best of parents.
3. How to parent more effectively with children’s temperament in mind.

Workshop fees

We will offer a sliding scale fee system for this workshop. You may choose from one of the following:

  • Community Fee $45 – this is a reduced fee to help make the course accessible to people who have limited financial resources, and work with children and families. This fee does not cover the full cost of the workshop and is subsidized by people paying at the Supporting Level.
  • Sustaining Fee $60 – This fee covers the actual cost of the course. Please select this price if you are able to pay the full workshop fee.
  • Supporting Fee $75 – Help make mindfulness and compassion workshops more accessible to people throughout the community. This fee covers the cost of the workshop and allows CCFW to continue offering subsidized fees for people working with children and families, or who have limited financial means

This course is eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs). 3 CEUs will be available for licensed psychologists, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors,  and social workers in Washington State. We cannot gurantee that these CEUs will be accepted in other states.
