7-week Empowered Parenting at Highline College

April 18th-May 30th, 2019
7 Thursdays from 6pm-8pm
Teach by Kristina Saelee at the Highline College
Building 10 Room 202
Price $169  (Item # 9692)
Call: 206-592-3785 or Kristina@empoweredparentingsolutions@gmail.com to register.

This workshop is a 7-week course with an intended long-term outcome of teaching young people to become responsible, respectful, and resourceful members of their community by improving the decision-making process of both parents and their children.

The goal of this workshop is to empower parents with the following tools:

1. Parents taking this course will learn how to model firmness by respecting themselves and the needs of the situation involving behavioral issues, and kindness by respecting the needs of the child.

2. Parents will learn how to identify the belief behind their child’s behavior, thereby gaining skills in changing root causes, rather than attempting to change the behavior itself.

3. Parents will strengthen their skills in effective communication and problem-solving.

4. Parents will learn discipline strategies that teach and focus on solutions instead of punishment.

5. Parents will be equipped to build long-term self-esteem and empower their children by encouraging effort and improvement instead of focusing on just success.

6. Parents will learn how to avoid power struggles and to motivate their children.

These parenting tools are taught through experiential activities and along with reading from the Positive Discipline book.

Instructor Qualifications: Kristina has been certified as a Positive Discipline Parent and Classroom Educator.
