Compassionate Discipline: Raising Resilient Children [Online Course]
Join us as we guide parents and caregivers through effective discipline strategies that honour the relationship with their child and foster neurological development. Parents will have a better understanding of “what gets in the way” of emotional health in children, and how to solve every day parenting struggles. All strategies are science-informed, evidence-based, and practical for parenting children.
Feeling like you can’t get to your child? At your wits end with disruptive behaviour? Feel that your children don’t listen to anything you say? Wondering if there is something more effective than yelling, time-outs, or physical discipline? Feeling overwhelmed as a parent and aren’t sure what else to do? …or maybe you are just trying to look for ways to be the best parent you can be while honoring the relationship with your child.
This course will begin with an overview of neurological development of children and how this accounts for their struggles with emotion regulation and impulse control. A thorough overview of attachment will be covered: parents will be able to identify and comprehend their current attachment style with their child, how that impacts behaviour, and how to strengthen the attachment should their be issues with connecting.
Our Co-Founder, Tammy Schamuhn, Registered Psychologist and Registered Play Therapist will guide parents and caregivers through effective discipline strategies that honor the relationship with their child and foster neurological development. Furthermore, they will have a better understanding of “what gets in the way” of emotional health in children, and how modern-day discipline can go very wrong with our children [and why it just doesn’t work for us long-term]. All strategies are science-informed, evidence-based, and practical for parenting children. This course is packed with resources, links, and videos on top of the 6.5 hours of curriculum!
